Please Update your Phone iOS to the latest one available from Apple
We have received reports from some users that the app crashes when viewing temple details. For everyone that we spoke to this was solved when they updated their phone iOS to the latest available through Apple.
For iPhones this was 7.1.1
For iPads this was 7.
We have tested this APP over many months on different screens / sizes / Devices and can attest to the fact that it never crashed. Only after release did we encounter this problem of app crashing when going into temple details. The solution is not within the app but in your phone iOS version.
This is a 5 Star review one of the users left for us in Australia on the same issue.
Excellent app, but Make sure you Update your Phone’s iOS version ★★★★★
by RaghuGuru – Version 2.0 – Jun 8, 2014
Excellent app, but Make sure you Update your Phone’s iOS version. I initially bought the app to see temples, this is my first app purchase and I was really angry as it kept crashing when I tried to open any of the temple details. Happened time and again, I was going to leave a 1 star review and ask for a refund. Finally I thought of giving it one last chance and updated my phone iOS version to the latest 7.1.1 and BOOM the problems are all gone, the App works perfectly fine. I can see all the temples details in my area, found some new ones that I didn’t know about, didn;t realise there were so many hindu temples in Australia. Very good app , but just make sure you update your phone iOS to the latest before starting the app else it will keep crashing just as it did for me, Also I prefer the Map view to explore the temples as the list view is limited to 100 Temples. The Worldwide location lets you see all the temples in the world in MAP View.
The same solution worked for an iPAD Air when one of the users from the US contacted us about the app crashing. Here’s the conversation I had with him.
In Summary Updating the iOS version to the latest one helped him fix the problem of app crashing. In Summary it is not a problem with the app, just with some non updated OS versions.
If you are facing any issues with the App please contact us on hari (at) allhindutemples.com
Here’s a conversation I had with a Gentleman from the US about this (Image insert, only available on the website, can’t be seen through the blog.)
Unfortunately Apple prevents developers from updating the metadata of the App without an update so there is no way I can add this info in the listing on iTunes until the next update.

This was of course not my idea, but the credit for that simple and catchy tagline goes to my better half 😉 the support and inspiration behind this project.

We just started a Public Fundraiser for the Hindu Temples Android App.
Many reasons for this, main one being we want to make the Android APP FREE, 100% free, no catches, no gimmicks 100% free. I created this directory to help disperse information on temples not to put a paywall in between and monetise the information. So You can help me help millions of Hindus worldwide.

Help me create a Free Hindu Temples Directory for Android. I created the directory AllHinduTemples.com HELP me FREE the Android APP
Help me create an awesome Hindu Temples Directory App on Android and GIVE IT AWAY for FREE. I created the above iOS app but had to put it behind a Paywall to cover some costs, help me make the ANDROID app and give it away for free:
Now I want to create the Hindu Temples Android APP and I think

app will help Hindus the world over find and get contact details, opening hours, Phone numbers , websites, address and other information about temples all in one easy to use app.Your contribution would help Hindus all over get to their nearest temples quicker and in turn support the temples as they will find a bigger audience.
I need ~2000 $ to create an awesome Android app + expand our world wide coverage to more countries.
We currently have ~ 2000 Temples in 50 countries in the directory. This is nowhere close to the real number of Hindu temples, We want to expand this to include more countries and more details for the larger temples.
IndieGOGO Goal : 2000 $
Android App Creation Cost : ~ 1500$,
Any extra funds raised go to improving the coverage and mapping temples in India.
- I also have funding campaigns going on privately with friends / groups, etc.
- I have already spent over ~ 6000 $ of my own money coming so far.
- If I don’t meet the 2000$ goal the funds will be used to map more temples.
What The Hindu Temples Android APP will do ?
Give everyone a list of 100 Temples near them based on location. Allow them to save their favorite temples offline.
For every temple it will give the following details.
- Address / Map Location
- One Click Driving directions
- Directly Call Temples phone numbers
- View their Opening hours
- Email Address
- Facebook Pages
- Background story / description of the temple
We have done this before in our iOS app and on our website. The number 1 feedback I got when I released the iOS app was “What about Android ?”
Here’s YOUR chance to Help build the an awesome Android APP and help Hindus the world over.

Why I won’t run ads on the site ? Why not run ads and make the App free ?
I have been asked this question often, and here’s the reply.
Firstly I hate ads, I personally use all sorts of adblockers on every browser so it’d be very Hypocritical of me to start selling ads on this website / App.
Secondly Ads kill the user experience. Here you are trying to get your work done or read an article or get the information that you need, and there’s this ad distracting you and causing a hindrance in the user experience.
Here’s some great words from the founder of WhatsApp, Jan Koum
Advertising isn’t just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought. At every company that sells ads, a significant portion of their engineering team spends their day tuning data mining, writing better code to collect all your personal data, upgrading the servers that hold all the data and making sure it’s all being logged and collated and sliced and packaged and shipped out… And at the end of the day the result of it all is a slightly different advertising banner in your browser or on your mobile screen.
Remember, when advertising is involved YOU the user are the product.
And some closing words from Tyler Durden, Fight Club
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy stuff we don’t need.
– Tyler Durden, Fight Club
My objective is to help you find the temples near you, I need to be able to fund that somehow and that’s why we have a small cost to buy the App.
Ads be gone.
