I installed the Caltopo App on my phone, and seem to be encountering an issue while trying to log in. After I select "CalTopo" as the server where my account is located, I then get a screen stating "Please sign in with the account you want to sync:" However, there are no drop down menus or dialogs for me to select an account. Please see attached screenshot.

Currently running Android version 9 on a LG G6.

    Hi Ben,

    Have you tried clearing the app cache on your Android phone? My suggestion would be to try that first: close the app, clear the app cache then open it again and attempt to log in again. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Let us know if either of those steps resolves the issue- if not, we can continue to troubleshoot!

    I tried clearing the app cache as well as reinstalling the app, and neither resolved the issue.

    I was able to solve the issue by logging into Caltopo with the Firefox browser on my phone, and then launching the app. The issue may have been related to the fact that I have only used Caltopo on my desktop, and had never logged into an account through my phone.

    Thanks for the assistance.
