new Strava app – Crashes & Difficulties reported
My Strava app seems to be grinding slowly to a halt today in the UK and it seems I’m not alone as many users report problems with the first day of Strava’s newly refreshed Android and iOS apps.

Most users are reporting their woes here on Twitter.
The problem looks to be on the Strava server, perhaps too many of us are exploring the new app? Perhaps there is a more varied load by two sets of users some of whom are on the app and others not? Who knows? but what I think many of us do know is that it is slow and, as the images above show, sometimes this results in the service being unusable.
I persevered through the slowness and do have my Strava iOS app working.
There is no official comment from Strava as yet, although that might appear on their Twitter support feed.
I can’t see any workaround, for now, other than have an extra cup of coffee and wait for a while.
As of Thursday afternoon, my Premium account seems to now be working speedily well.
