I am a big fan of the program however it will not load for the past two days! It crashes the instant it comes up. I am designing a game for a huge conference based on the ARIS platform and now I am worried that it won't work or us...

Crashes before even using

I have been working on the app hoping to finally see it work in this app. I can’t even go past the profile picture because it keeps crashing, and it’s been a year and there’s still reviews coming in about that. Don’t even bother to download, it’s useless

Can’t even start it

I was really looking forward to creating some content with this app and exploring what it can do, but it crashes before I can even upload my player photo (which should be able to import from my camera roll, and not just take it on the spot).
