What's New in Version 1.9.1
- Fixes a page layout issue
- iOS 9
I'm extremely impressed at the speed that the developer updated the app for slide over and split view in iOS 9. It was the first app I use to do it, much sooner than apps made me large companies.
The reason for the four stars instead of five is that the 6 Plus in landscape mode doesn't take advantage of the extra space like it could. It should be like the top bar on iPad in portrait.
