App Force Closes, Unusable since update

Have been using this app for several months and was a big fan of it, but since the most recent update it has been unusable for me on my Macbook. Every time I try to open it the app attempts to open but immediately force closes itself.

App has not been updated in a while and it shows. I like that I can load it in the menubar on login, but I would love for the window to not always pop open (does not abide by the hide checkmark). Also, it when going to upload gifs, the tags will not allow spaces, but the online version and filter suggestions both do. Lastly, there seems to be an issue with keeping things consistant when it comes to organizing the 'favorites', 'uploads', and 'recents'. For instance, my favorites sometimes show a filled ❤️, but othertimes doesn't. If the heart is unfilled, but filed in my 'favorites' folder, then filling the heart (❤️) removes it from my favorites, but still shows as filled if searching in the main search.

I read the reviews about the name confusion. I believe that there has been a revision that fixed at least some of the naming problems. In LaunchPad, when I type in Tenor, there is no result. When I type in Gif, GifKeyboard comes up. Tenor is still part of the app. I have seen it in some menus and on the window that pops up after I click on the icon in the menubar. I haven’t had Gif long, but it seems more straight forward that some of the 2017 reviews indicated.
