I managed to fix it myself after finding the plugin smartapp from Sharptools had not completed its setup and was hanging the loading of the Smartapps but only in IOS … in android the ST app worked.
I had been looking at another dashboard solution as ActionTiles does not appear to being updated and is quite basic and lacking the ability to do more. So I looked st Sharptools (among others) and found Sharptools wasn’t very good either …very old school … but in testing I’d left in the plugin to ST that caused the issue.
So my SmartApp may be fixed but my search for a fully featured dashboard continues.
Can you clarify what you mean by it hadn’t completed it’s setup?
Thanks for the feedback. Are there specific features you’re looking for or specific things you feel are ‘old school’?
Just to confirm, were you using the SharpTools for Android app which is focused on Tasker plugins and Widgets (eg. a utility / not pretty)? If you’re looking for a visual dashboard and Rule Engine, check out the web based SharpTools.io:
No I wasn’t using Android I was using windows laptop to access Sharptools , but my ActionTiles dashboard is displayed on an Android tablet which is how I was able to run the ST app in Android and find the issue.
I liked Sharptools from the ease of use but the feeling /look was standard square or rectangular boxes , and is very similar to ActionTiles capabilities. I was looking for some thing where I can add in gauges or line graphs to display the temperature output from sensors or power meters. And the ability to change shape of tiles maybe?
Also I had problems with the media tiles which I couldn’t get to work … I was using a web server on my local lan that works fine from any browser and also when adding a media tile … after clicking new and selecting media (added new media) the new option added was now out of view and the options box not scrollable. see attached image
I’ve had a similar issue. I haven’t needed to modify anything in my Smart Lighting automations since being forced to move to the new app. I couldn’t find it anywhere. Smartapps was empty.
I’m posting for info for anyone else as a possible resolution if you have the same issue.
I decided to try to re-add Smart Lighting and lo and behold there were all my existing automations. Great, I thought, but on clicking done, Smartapps was again empty. No matter what I tried, I could not get the app to stick. I could make changes to the automations and they worked, but the new app would not keep the app listed.
Having read this thread, and the comment about spaces in smartapps, I looked in the IDE and there was a smartapp in the list at /installedSmartApp/list that was completely blank and with a state showing ‘INCOMPLETE’. No other details. I deleted it and refreshed the iOS app view and bingo, it worked.
TL;DR - rogue blank null smartapp in /installedSmartApp/list stopped iOS app from showing anything in SmartApps - deleting this solved the issue
