Unfortunately, I can’t help you with this one. Apparently, the most recent update to The Age app has broken it!
Your iPad must be set to perform automatic updates, so you probably wouldn’t have realised that it has downloaded this latest problematic version.
Below is the information provided in The Age today about this problem.
The Age iPad app experiencing problems
Users with the latest version of The Age iPad app may be experiencing system crashes when it opens.
Once crashed, attempts to open it again will not succeed.
For those who don't have the latest version, please refrain from updating your app.
In the meantime, subscribers can access The Age's content on their iPad or computer by going to theage.com.au using their internet browser.
We are working with Apple to rectify the issue as soon as possible, and will advise all users when this is done.a
We apologise for the inconvenience.
