After several reinstallations in a span of a few weeks i'm still experiencing crashes of varying frequency, but the endless loading bug thankfully hasn't recurred.
I noticed that downloading the app takes a long time (30 min or so), it's probably my connection, i dunno if it's relevant to my crashing problem.
Another observation, when im making a series of moves in a single turn there will be several crashes (10 or more), and i'm making the same series of moves for those 10+ crashes. On the 15th try, when i make a deviation on,say, the last of the series of moves, the app will have no problem sending the turn. It will still crash, but at least the turn goes through.
