Android Home app keeps crashing

After the latest update, everytime I try to turn off a zone the app keeps crashing. I've restarted my phone and tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but it continues to crash.

Mine is doing the exact same thing. Gave a one star rating on Google play and received a response to come here to find the answers. I don't see any answers. 😡

Yes, the app still crashes when I try to turn off a zone.

Re: Android Home app keeps crashing

I have the same issue as well. The android app can arm and disarm the system, but when trying to access any zone it says "unfortunately Home has stopped." Report.  OK. 

And then it closes.

Yes to all. I can open the app, everything works but trying to choose a zone, app stops working and closes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple times.

Re: Android Home app keeps crashing

Re: Android Home app keeps crashing

And by the way i was on the phone with Home techical spport for over an hour yesterday, we did everything under the sun, still no good.. i talked to my phone carrier, nothing they can do, said its the developers problem to fix..

Re: Android Home app keeps crashing

Yes, I still have the problem. There is no reason to send you my name and house info. The issue is the app itself, not my account permissions. On my older phone that did not update the app works fine. Not to be insulting but from a techs viewpoint the problem is simple. I have 3 phones with the app. 2 of the phones updated the app. On those 2 phones the app no longer works properly. 1 phone did not update the app. The app still works properly on that phone.  The problem is the update.

Re: Android Home app keeps crashing

To everyone who is having this issue: The July 18 update appears to have reolved this problem. I just updated one of my phones and so far it is working properly. If the issue returns I will post that it has come back. Hopefully this corrects the problem for everybody. That is for those of us running android. I hope if it affecting iphone users that the issue is resolved as well.
