Issues with SOTAGoat

Of late I have been experiencing lots of problems with SOTAGoat.  It appears that this has been since I upgraded to IOS 7.0.4 on my iPhone.  And I have read on the SOTA Yahoo group that others have been experiencing the same.


The problem is mainly that the goat does not bleat anymore to alert me of spots.  However at times when it has been working, I have been receiving duplicate notifications.  I have found that if I delete the SOTAGoat app, and then turn the iPhone off and wait a few minutes, and then turn the i-phone back on and reload the apple, that the spot alerts come through.  But they only work for a short period of time and then stop again.

I have sent off an e-mail to the developer, Rockwell Schrock, who was kind enough to respond promptly.  Rockwell advises that the duplicate alerts should be resolved now.  However, he has not been able to pinpoint that problem yet.

Rockwell would be keen to hear from you if you are experiencing problems.  His e-mail address is…..

  1. Mine won’t turn off. It bleated half of last night. Even though push was turned off!! I’m also not seeing all of the alerts. Have passed it on. Andrew vk3bq

  2. Howdy Andrew,

    Mine does the same. There are clearly major issues. I presume you are using the latest IOS for iphone ? The app worked a dream until I upgraded.



  3. Had an issue whereby all alerts were coming through twice. Seems to have stabilised in the last 10 days or so though. Haven’t cross checked with the SOTA website to see if I’ve missed any notifications.
