What's New in Version 4.1.2
Bugfix for data migration crashes
Going downhill fast!
This used to be an AWESOME "go-to" app for me. The new design for the app is difficult to follow and difficult to find what I'm looking for. It used to be perfect and simple, scroll down, find what you want and read. Great. Now it's confusing. I have to try to search for the information I am wanting to find and normally have to click on something to read what I want to read. I thought the previous redesign was bad, but I was wrong. This one is far worse! I miss the older versions of this app that were AWESOME! Now it's AWFUL!!!!!! I have to give a star to write a review. Honestly, it's better to search in safari for something and click into Wikipedia on Safari than to use the app. I have honestly considered deleting it with the redesign.
This last update fixed it!!
Now the app actually works for me now and I am so happy. I use this app ALL the time and I adore it. So much easier than having to open it in the Safari browser. Thank you for fixing the crash.
It now works! Awesome!
The app now works! Latest update fixed the crashing problem. I use this app multiple times practically every day. So, glad it's fixed and I can use it again. It looks better too!
