Hi.
Shin KGS is great to play go on tablets like the ipad via a webbased interface (so you can walk around while playing go).
Since yesterday however, Shin KGS somehow stopped working on my ipad.
It just shows a blank page where I would expect the prompt to log in to KGS. On my computer however, it seems to work fine.
Did something change on KGS that causes this problem? I hope it will be fixed soon.

greetings, Niek

On my phone it sometimes stops working in Chrome, but works in Firefox, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

shinKGS is working for me, on an iPad mini -- it may be that you need to clear the browser cache, or something along those lines (is there anything on your local network that caches pages?).

Go to Settings > Safari, and tap Clear History and Website Data.

I've tried rebooting, clearing safari cache and I've tried multiple browsers.
I'm more or less stuck on an outdated ios version (9.3.3), because I've had
issues with apps breaking down as a consequence of updating in the past and
since there is no way to undo an update of ios, I tend to refrain from updates.
Usually things keep working if you don't update, but I guess this is one of those
rare situations where things stop working even without updating (I'm assuming there
was some kind of modification either at KGS or at Shin KGS that causes the
problem).
Anyway thanks for the feedback.

I guess I'll be playing on IGS for a while, since the pandanet go app still seems
to work ok.
Or maybe at some point I'll go for an ios update. It's a trade-off..
some of my beloved apps will stop working (discontinued apps that are no longer
available in the app-store), but other apps that refuse to run on an outdated
ios version will become available (like autodesk sketchbook).
