iPod app shuts off while downloading video made

My son made a video, about 30 seconds long for a school project on an app. I think called stop motion studio, his teacher wants him to download it too a school website Dropbox where the teacher can then open the Dropbox and view it and Mark it. When he tries to download it the app closes. Is it likely an iPod issue or an app issue? Any clue why this is happening?

It could be a number of factors.

Is he using a jail broken iOS? Some apps will not work on hacked systems. This also enables him to use non-Apple App Stores, which have possibly broken apps, or free versions of paid apps. Try using the Apple App store or remove the jailbreak.

Is he out of space? The video or other apps are using all the space on the device so he can't download? He could remove unused apps and delete old message threads to clear up space.

Is he on an old generation iPod Touch? Some apps only work on newer devices.

Is he on an old iOS? He shouldn't see apps that are not working for his version, but occasionally it happens.

Another alternative if he syncs the iPod Touch to iTunes, he could use that computer to pull the video off and upload with a PC.

Another option is if the app (stop motion studio) has the ability to save it to the iCloud drive, you could use a PC to transfer it to Dropbox.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
