When things start acting up, crashing, or making this weird noise that's really hard to describe, there are a few things that you can do to help get back on track. Below are some general troubleshooting tips that solve most of the hiccups that can give you heartburn:
First, try closing the app and restarting your device
This little trick can work miracles when your electronics start to act out.
If you're still having issues, try the following...
Ensure that the device has enough free space to store pictures

Try airplane mode for a bit
InspectARide is designed to run offline or online but, like many apps, can sometimes have trouble if it's frequently changing between the two or has a very slow connection. To see if this is causing the problem, you can try operating in airplane mode for a bit and then uploading when you've got a strong signal. If this solves the problem, your and/or cellular signal just be temporarily flaky.
