Upgrade for IOS 11


A very useful app that I have used on 25th January, but it needs to be updated to 64 bit for IOS 11. Any chance?

Still problems with 3G


Before the last update it crashed on launch. Now it only crashes when accessing the timeline. It is also missing text info on the pages for'What to recite' and 'Wear to wear'. And missing Fact no.1! I'm onlu interested inthe poems so not really bothered by these problems, but it is irritating when apps don't do what they are supposed to. It is nice to have all the poems in a free app.

Orientation problem


I think this would be a great app if only you could view all of the text at once. On the iPad I can only see a portion of the text, it's designed to be a landscape page but only shows on portrait (and doesn't turn with the iPad so you can see it) mode. You also can't move the page to see the missing text. I may persist with it in the hope that the above issues are resolved.
