Cannot get a compiled app to work

Hi Greg,

Since your app does work on the simulator but crashes on startup on a
physical device, a rough guess of the cause is that your app tries to load
"something" on startup (an external maybe?), which can be found on the
simulator because the path to it is valid, but fails on device because the
path to "something" is not found.

I suggest you have a look at the device log in Xcode when you install and
launch the app in your iPad.

PS: The fact that your iPad runs iOS 9.x is not a problem, as long as in
the iOS standalone settings you have NOT chosen to build for "iOS 10.0 or
