Whooops, that's us! Update is on the way

Edit: here it is, deactivated logging on the desktop - sorry about that!

hah yea noticed that too. will grab the fixed version shortly.

but before i do...

i've just checked my macbook's activity monitor because the fans have been spinning hard since i got back home (left macbook on while i was out) and it turns out that touchable is the culprit, sitting proud at the top with 100% cpu. the ipad isn't plugged in and Live is not loaded.

before i quit it, are there any logs etc i can grab for you to diagnose, or is this already fixed in the latest desktop app?

cheers

osx 10.9.5

I'm on a PC and the other day noticed that my desktop had some suspicious CPU drain.
20% being chewed on by Touchable server.
Live was already closed and my ipad unplugged so I don't know what it was trying to do.
