My iOS app said the same thing the other day but after I refreshed it the records showed up. Temporary glitch?

This happens on the app for me almost every time I login. If I just drag my finger to refresh the page, it goes back to normal.

I have and it still doesn’t fix.

Update: It eventually fixed itself

Thanks for the reports. We’re working on a fix for this, but as you’ve all mentioned, the observations will reappear eventually on their own, too.


This may be an instance of the same problem, so I’ll share it here instead of creating a new bug report. On the Merlin app as of this week my latest observations are from 2 years ago (and the thumbnails don’t seem to load). Refreshing doesn’t help. The activity feed is accurate and in sync with the website.

Running on Mac OS 1.6.03 / iNat app 3.2.6.

The problem seems to have been fixed somehow.
