Unexpected changes may happen - please help
Context of comment:MountainViews is implementing a change whereby it can be installed as an App on major mobile platforms (e.g. Android, Apple iOS) and on some desktop & browser combinations (notably Windows + Google Chrome). In the technical world this is known as a "Progessive Web App" or PWA.

Initial trials with the App have been generally good with advantages such as much faster startup and page loading. Further advantages anticipated include social media import/export (e.g. sending/ receiving GPX files from other Apps, working somewhat while offline) and various others will follow.

However as this is a powerful tool, some tweaking and optimisation is necessary and some of this is difficult to test for because the way PWA's work on different platforms including mobile (Android/ iOS) and desktop to say nothing of different browsers.

Note: in general PWAs or more likely to work fully when you use them with an up-to-date Google Chrome browser which is available on most mobile platforms (including Apple) and on most desktop platforms (including Linux). However they also work well on other browsers such as Firefox.
Message:In an initial trial on 18th July 2023 results appeared good when tested. But some users (not all) reported that track uploading was failing or behaving oddly.

Changes have been made therefore to temporarily remove sources of trouble while a correction is made, though the App is still installable.
Additional points:We need help on this due to the variety of platforms that MountainViews.ie and its App "MountainViews App" runs on.

Please report any anomalies to admin@mountainviews.ie no matter how small. If the system hangs or does unexpected things let us know.

Note. One way of correcting some issues with this sort of App is to close ALL windows with MountainViews running (browser or App) and then reopen them. The forces a reinstallation of the App's controlling files.

Folks, we need help on this one.
