Whenever I try to open my existing desktop Obsidian vault in Obsidian mobile via iCloud, the mobile app gets stuck in a loop or crashes entirely.

Here are the steps I’ve used:

  1. On my iPhone, install the Obisidian mobile app.
  2. On my Mac, find the new Obisidan folder in my iCloud Drive directory.
  3. On my Mac, copy my existing Obsidian vault (“Notes”) into the Obsidian folder in iCloud.
  4. On my iPhone, launch the Obisidan mobile app and locate the Notes vault.
  5. Try to open the Notes vault.

Sometimes I get stuck in a loop on the loading screen, with the app repeatedly trying to load the vault but never getting there:

Sometimes, I make it far as the “Safe Mode” popup, but then things get stuck. The UI is fully unresponsive and I have to force-quit the app.

On the other hand, I’m able to successfully sync the vault using Obsidian Sync, and that’s what I’m doing now. But I would prefer to use iCloud.

Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help provide more useful/actionable feedback.

I’m using Obisidan Mobile v0.0.11 on iOS 14.4.

Should have been fixed in v0.0.14.
