Fallout Shelter Down Today?

The new Fallout Shelter app went live with problems right away for iPhone devices, even though thousands would be wondering where the Fallout Shelter app for Android was after comments at E3 in regard to the Apple partnership.

When the game first saw a release date for iOS, tweets spoke about Fallout Shelter crashing every other animation and some even considered an upgrade to their iPhone so it wouldn’t crash. This is how much the fans love this franchise and look forward to playing Fallout 4 in 2015. Thousands sent crash reports to Bethesda Studios at launch and most agreed the game would crash whenever they rush the Diner, as well in a number of other sections.

This app puts fans in control of a really smart shelter that’s found underground, your job is to build the best Fallout Shelter possible and keep the people inside happy by protecting them. You will need an iPhone 5 or later to play also iPad mini 2 and newer. If you’re seeing crashing or freezing inside the app, then detail the device and issues below.

I just think anything to do with Bethesda Softworks is not 100% working in the manner it should, play Fallout and game crash, Elder Scrolls the same thing.

I cant even download it! It worked fine when I first downloaded but when I tried to go on it later that day apparently it wasn’t installed and now gets to 100% and then says error could not download ☹ I just need some fallout in my life!

I am giving up on Fallout because I’m tired of it freezing, not loading and I have lost thee lunch boxes recently. When I can get logged on its good for maybe 10 minutes at best. I love this game and wish that’s Bethesda would get their act together and keep up with updates and fixes.

Creating new vault and it doesnt continue after that. Problems start from point of adding new room. What i see from earlier is at install, game logo has divided with screen half upper side regular logo and other half has shadowy. I am guessing game cause all problems because there is an issue from installing to device. Maybe some patch needed at starting point. Please consider that part. To me its lookslike going to solve all issue at that starting point.
Thanks in advance.

I can’t even download it, I deleted the data a while back and when this new update came out I decided to download it again buts everytime I try it shows up with the Apple ID password, (Which I enter), I wait a few seconds after it loads it then shows a update notification for Fallout Shelter, when I go back to home screen the app that was downloading has disappeared. When I go back to the App Store very confused and try to see Fallout Shelter again, it shows the “Get” button again, like I haven’t even started to download it.

Same exact thing for me. It crashed during Deathclaw and now I can’t load that vault. I can load my other vault just fine…but not my larger vault. This really sucks as I had spent $$ on a vault I can’t open.
