$state.go() runs with no errors but doesn't actually work w/ Ionic

I’m simply trying to get the state to change to a new template after running a function on ng-change, from a selection of options.

My function runs fine once a selection is made, but the $state.go() that is called at the end of the function doesn’t actually change the state to the next state view I want to navigate to.

Below is my code (simplified). I want to select an option in “template/pages/addit/index.html”, run a function, then change state to “template/pages/addit/edit.html”.


angular.module('starter', ['ionic','firebase'])

.config(function($stateProvider, $urlRouterProvider) {

.state('app', {
url: "/app",
abstract: true,
templateUrl: "templates/pages/menu/index.html",
controller: 'AppController'

.state('app.addit', {
url: "/addit",
views: {
  'menuContent': {
    templateUrl: "templates/pages/addit/index.html",
    controller: 'AddItController'

.state('app.addit.edit', {
url: "/edit",
views: {
    templateUrl: "edit.html",
    controller: 'EditItController'
// if none of the above states are matched, use this as the fallback


.controller('AddItController', function($scope, $state, addInventory){

$scope.selectNum = function (num) {
  addInventory(num) //works fine
  $state.go('app.addit.edit');//doesn't actually change the state
  console.log('the state is '+$state.current);



   <label class="item item-input item-select">
      <div class="input-label">
        How many?
      <form >
        <select ng-change='selectNum(num)' ng-model="num"  required>

          <option  value='1'  selected>1</option>
          <option  value='2' >2</option>
