What's New in Version 1.2.2
**Trajectories Node (Mechanics>V&A)**
If you are planning on getting this because you like the website, don't get it as it is much worse - the diagrams are barely legible, the interface harder to navigate, there are no links to other pages and there aren't relating topics shown like on the site. It is a big disappointment as the website is so good.
Good but hard to read on iPhone.
Lots of good info, and nicely organised to get you into it, but some text is so small and resolution so bad it is very difficult if not impossible to read and there is not even an option to enlarge it. Also, updates to fix these problems are not forthcoming.
Great for revision
Perfect for if you're revising in the car or need a reminder on a particular topic.
