Born in Wales in 1916, to Norwegian parents, Roald Dahl has become an icon of children’s literature and his books continue to be adored by generations of young readers, even after his death in 1990. He was chosen as the favourite author of British teachers in a poll in 2012.
What's New in Version 2.0
Hopdiggedy! Those technical brainboxes have created ‘Ford Applink integration’ so you can listen in your motorcar and even control the app with just your voice (NB. if the BFG’s joining you, you might need to open the sun roof).
Even if you don't have a Ford, some technical changes have been made which mean you need to install this update, otherwise everything will go whopsy-whiffly and will stop working.
Constantly crashing with iOS 8.1.3
We have been using this for several months now, downloading a book every month or so as part of bedtime.
I have been having problems with it constantly crashing since iOS 8.1.3.
I have had the same problem with my iPad 3 and iPhone 6.
I have used the available offline option just i case it is my wifi but the problem persists.
Is this an issue of others?
