App Crashing when you select Apps / Websites or "Other" Category

We are aware of an issue where Opal will freeze or crash when you select the “Other” category or search for specific apps/websites when you’re selecting apps/websites to block.

This issue is described here with a video:

When I go to edit my app groups, there are multiple categories of apps (e.g. Social, Games) you can add to or delete from a blocklist or whitelist. Usually, when you click on a category (Social, for example), it reveals all the apps in that category you can add to a blocklist. However, when I do this for the last category on the list, “Other,” it just reveals a blank, black screen.

I’m wondering if a) anyone else has experienced this issue, and b) where Opal’s progress is on fixing the bug since I first emailed them about it around April 12.

Thank you!

Hello!
Thanks for reporting the issue. Unfortunately, this screen is made by Apple, not us, and we cannot fix it ourselves.
We reported the issue in August 22, while iOS 16 was still in beta, and we haven’t seen any advancement since then.

We will keep you posted if we here back from Apple, we hope they’ll fix it in with iOS 17 that will go out in September.

Hey team
reporting one issue that I’m experiencing on “iPhone 13 Pro max”

Whenever I try to white list any app from “Prudctivity and finance” category, the app freezes, and I’m unable to do it

Tried in different session and the same problem.

Here is a video demo for this

I hope I’m creating the right thread.

Thanks :pray:t2:
