Shortly after we resolved the an issue where the SharePoint Newsfeed iOS App was crashing, we found an issue where some people’s NewsFeed apps were getting the error “We couldn’t get new data right now, try again later.”
There are actually 2 solutions to this error, the 2nd is below & more than a little bit of hair pulling was involved!
We recently went live with a SharePoint 2013 project, the projects launch included the SharePoint NewsFeed iOS App too.
However, before go live we noticed an issue where under some circumstances the SharePoint Newsfeed iOS App (1.0-1.2) would crash when trying to sign in.
After a period of troubleshooting, we found that the app only crashed when connecting directly to some of our SharePoint 2013 sites. But those same sites would work fine when connecting externally via our TMG.
