Here is a weirdness that i cant explain...I create an app install using a development cert. on ipad or iphone..The app runs as expected for about a month then one day I launch the app and it seems to immediately fail no indications, no errors just tap the app and it seems to open and then close. However if i double tap the home button i can see the app running!! Even stranger ALL the apps created like this fail AT THE SAME TIME!! This behaviour does not happen with apps created before the introduction of the Corona splash screen.... If i rebuild the apps they then start working fine but only for about a month.... Did i miss some restriction around using the splash screen? These apps were never created for general distribution just for my own internal use so i saw no need to pay to remove the splash screen.however the data in their documents folders is important to me...any ideas..has anyone else seen this behaviour? Plus any ideas on how i might get access the data in these apps documents folders? Could someone point me to the information around using the Corona Splash screen.,
Strange behaviour... apps that appear to stop working

This allows you to install apps on devices without having to add the device ID to the provisioning profile, but with this down side.
I believe the 7-day limit is for people who have not paid for a developer program membership yet. Apple has been messing around with how long various "test" versions of apps can run. I think with a paid developer account using a development profile it's 30 days. TestFlight is 90 days and AdHoc is 6 months. You need an Enterprise developer account (Apple, not Corona) to sideload for longer periods.
However this is the crash log for the app...
