World App “RETURNING SHORTLY” - what to do?

If you're an avid user of the World App and come across a message saying "World App Returning Shortly," there's no need to panic. This message typically appears when the app is experiencing a higher than usual traffic load. The good news is that it will return shortly, and you just need to try again later.

In most cases, all you have to do is be patient and wait for a few hours, or even a day, before restarting the app. Usually, the app sees a surge in demand during grant claiming or reserving periods. For instance, the next grant release is scheduled for August 28th, and during this specific period, expect the app to be at its busiest. Consequently, there's a chance that the app might crash while you attempt to reserve a grant.

To overcome this hurdle, you have two options. First, you can install notifications and act swiftly when you receive them. As soon as a notification pops up, quickly open the app and proceed with the grant reservation. Alternatively, if you're not in a rush, you can simply try again a day later. The advantage of waiting is that the number of reservations is typically limited. For example, during the last grant period, there were 365,000 reservations out of an available half a million slots. This means that over 130,000 reservations were still up for grabs after 8 days and 17 hours.

However, it's essential to note that there's no guarantee that waiting will always secure your reservation. In some cases, the reservation limit can fill up quickly. For instance, during a recent grant period, only 217 reservations were made out of the available 500 slot, while there were already 430,000 claims. It's unclear whether there's also a limit on claims, but this example demonstrates that it's possible for certain grants to reach their limits swiftly.

Despite this, in many cases, the reservation limit is not reached immediately, allowing you to wait a few days without missing out on the opportunity. So, if you encounter the "World App Returning Shortly" message, stay calm and exercise a bit of patience. In most instances, you'll be able to reserve your desired grant later on.
