That’s exactly what is happening to me. I hope it can be solved.

My App, like in your Screenshot, doesnt load any pictures. It doesnt crash though.
(Version 1.28.15 (568))

The lack of pictures is likely related to a bug that was live in our API for a couple hours today. Could you please check if pictures are loading now? Thanks!

Pictures are loading again, but not not recent thumbnails in the Activity tab. Ive tryed restarting the app and phone.

One crash on the identify/identifications tab, after that it is loading normally, also the identify page.

It still crashes and the pictures are not displayed

Good news, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and now it seems to work!

Uninstalled/reinstalled and same problem with the crashes. Website seems normal on my mobile Chrome on Android.

Quick update - following links to the app from Chrome seems to work. Although they are still slow and loathe to load correctly sometimes as before they function ‘normally’

Can you please reopen the app after it crashes and send us log files? To send log files, go to the About tab in the app and tap three times on the version number. You will then have the option to email the log files to us.
