Groove With Thee Commons’ Psychedelic Cumbia Jams, Make A Power Play With RAC At Trees And Discuss The Politics Of The State Fair Of Texas.

If you noticed that Facebook Messenger was acting all kinds of weird on your iPhone and crashing for no reason this past weekend, you were not alone.

Facebook Messenger was crashing almost instantly when iPhone owners opened the app after the iOS11 update. The update that infamously took up two to three gigabytes to download and actually did improve some functions on the iPhone, but a mobile developer says it may have been an obscure “CryptoTokenKit” code found in iOS 11 that caused the app to crash over the weekend.

It may have sucked if you were trying to organize weekend plans via Messenger with your friends, but now that Messenger is back, you should use it to plan a night out at one of the following events with your friends.
