App crashes & wont open

Original Post:
I was forced to update the app. Now, it won’t even open. It simply crashes every time. I relied on the app extensively due to travel. I hope this gets fixed soon.

After reading other reviews, I deleted the app and then reinstalled it. No luck. It still won’t open.

Thank you for the update. I can now open and use the app once again. Thank you for your reply and correcting the issue.

Developer Response ,

👋 We are so sorry for the trouble and we believe we have the fix in the next update. We've just released a new version 1.17.2 that should fix your issues. Please give it a go. If you still see issues after that please reach out to us at so we can be sure we get you back up and running.

Good UI, but no feature parity

Only good for responding. You can’t see even basic data about the tickets, including email addresses, but less any integration data. Almost useless until it has full feature parity with the web version. I have no idea why companies release gimpy apps without feature parity, but it seems to be a common trend, unfortunately. Supposedly an improved version is in the works, but who knows when that will roll out 😖

Thank you for the constant app improvement! When I first started using HelpScout on the iPhone it crashed all the time , now it’s like I’m almost sitting at my computer using the web interface! You folks rock !!
