    Is anyone else unable to, or having a lot of trouble uploading pics from iOS 8? I've tried for almost 20 minutes, on another forum, with no luck at all. For right now, iPhones with iOS 8 can't upload pics to facebook; they claim that they're working on it.

    I can't upload images to BYC from my iPad after upgrading to iOS 8.

    After selecting Upload File, it says uploading 1 of 1 and then quits with:

    Some images failed to upload:
    image.jpg - {error}

    You can try re-selecting and uploading again.

    Doesn't do any good; I've tried so many times I lost count. On my phone, it looks like the pic is uploading, but when the page refreshes, there's nothing there. No error messages show up either.

    Apparently it's a bug with safari and iOS 8 that was seen in beta and is still in the release version. Some are saying uploads work if you launch the website as a home screen app but I'm not seeing this work from my iPad. Supposedly Chrome on iOS 8 works fine. Not BYC's issue.

    I think you're not getting any error message because you're using the mobile site, which I just tried. I'm using the desktop site and it gives me that message in the red text I typed in my previous entry.

    I'm not desperate enough to install Chrome just yet.

    Me either. It's Rotten Apple's problem. They've gotten too full of themselves, and I think have forgotten that its customers are what's most important. It's a pain in the vent (bock bock...lol) right now, but I can wait. Will try from my tablet later. [​IMG]

    It's apple's problem, I'm having it too. If you try with the web version, still won't work for now. You won't be ableto upload to fb either. Unfortunately we'll have to wait for a patch. Idk if they care, but Apple has been made aware. [​IMG]

    Thanks I hope they sort it soon. My whole iPad has been pants since I did this update it's slow, doing what ever it pleases when it pleases, typing slow then all of a sudden catching up. What a nightmare.

    You're welcome. I've had the same problem. If you get a freeze, try to wait it out, or your browser might just poop a shelless egg...lol Hopefully they'll catch up with fixes soon.
