App Crashing

Hi, I am so obliged that I got introduced to Rekhta by one of my friend. I have been attending Rekhta festivals since 4 years in row and also have been using Rekhta app since long. However recently I am facing issue that whenever I open any Gazal or any writing for full page it just crashes and I have to again open the app. And I am never able to open the full page gazal. It works only if I keep on browsing the first page and main pages but the moment I tap to see the detailed content it crashes. I am using iPhone SE (latest edition) and latest IOS. Please help.

App Crash

I feel obliged to mention that Rekhta is by far the best available site for Urdu poetry one can find on the Internet and even the app UI is pretty satisfying.
But the app keeps crashing on my iPhone XR running on iOS 14.4 whenever I open any Nazm or Ghazal or for that matter anything that I search from the search bar.
It’s quite frustrating as it happens every single time so I basically can’t search for anything.

Bug for iPhone 11 not fixed

The Rekhta app tells me I can update and when I click update it takes me to the store. So far so good. Then you are left with the open option. Hit open and you are back at square one—in the app with the message that Rekhta app has been updated and you are once again staring at Update or Cancel. Hit Update and the same thing goes on. It’s frustrating.

Dear User, sorry for the trouble! Kindly remove the app from the phone once and then try to install the app from App Store. If problem remains, share the screenshots/ video of the issue at We will try to resolve the issue ASAP. Team Rekhta
