Little Moments App: What’s happened since the iOS8 update

Fat Mum Slim /


I wanted to give a bit of an update on all things App today. I’ll share a little bit about Little Moments and how the iOS8 update affected the App. I’ll be writing a post about where I’m at with making a decision on the Android version later today, so please leave all comments about the Android or non-iOS version for that post.

How did the latest update affect the App?

We try and keep across any changes that happened with operating systems and new devices too, but some things our out of our control. And this was one of those things. If you’ve updated your system to iOS8 you may have noticed that when you get to the last screen, the ‘USE’ button is covered up by the new predictive text bar. This means that people haven’t been able to publish to Instagram or Facebook.

We have submitted an update to Apple to have this fixed {over 10 days ago} but as you can imagine they have a bit of backlog with everyone updating their Apps, so it hasn’t yet be approved. We do have a workaround to use in the meantime though…


How to fix it

You can do one of two things.

1. Push the predictive text bar down with your finger, as seen in the image above. You have to use a swiping function with your finger to push it down and out of the way. Some people have had problems doing this, it might just take a few goes.

2. Alternatively, go into your phone settings {the clog icon} then GENERAL, then KEYBOARDS and then switch PREDICTIVE to off.

With either of those solutions you’ll be able to see the ‘USE’ button again, and publish your photos to whichever social network you please.

If you have any other issues with the App, please report them to me via email at or leave them in the comments below and I’ll get back to you.
