I think that it possible to get as far as blocked camera (IMG_0168) by the camera Setting on the iOs not allowing it. Try and check the settings to see if the camera isn't turned off (blocked) in Settings.
When you restarted your phone, did you close all fmgo files first. If not I would recommend closing all files, kill the app with s swipe up and then restart the iPhone. If you leave a file open and restart the iPhone, surprisingly the temp folder will not clear because of the open file. I suspect a lot of FMGo problems occur because of memory issues with the temp folder. If you create a new file and use the script in the new file, does it work on your iPhone?
Laura - Camera is on, otherwise, I wouldn't be able to take a photo with the Camera app.
I killed FMGO and restarted the phone with no luck.
I'm going to delete the app and add it back to the phone to see if that resolves it. Thanks for the suggestions, but no luck yet.
Tried restarting the app but nothing seems to work.
Camera works on phone and I can take a photo. Should I try removing FMGO, restart, then install it again?
Here's what I did to fix it.
I deleted Filemaker GO and then when I reinstalled it and attempted to take a picture of the photo, it asked if I wanted to allow this app to use the Camera app. I said yes, and it is working again.
I think what happened is that the app was not allowed to use the camera app so it stopped working. Must have been something I changed in the settings.
The place to check is in Settings -> Privacy -> Camera -> FileMaker Go
It is possible to have to have the camera working and taking pictures, but not have it enabled for FileMaker Go.

Laura Betz meant that FMGo did not have permission to use the camera, the setting was off. FMGo has to have permission to use the camera, if it does not then you will get a black screen. As you can see reinstalling will force FMGo to asks permission again. You can change under settings. Note a user can turn off camera permission for FMGo under setting, so it would be working and then stop as you describe.
My Guess is an Apple update to the IOS got in the way. Did you do an update to the phone? Apple has been updating things and seems to be tightening security as part of the updates.
