Recent iOS update fixed issues


Update: widget back working, issues resolved.

Ui needs iPhone X update


Although the app works, you can clearly tell the design has not been adapted to the new iPhone. The menu button is nearly on the clock/time, and the logo is partially cut off at the top.

Annoying random ad playing


Deleted the app as it would randomly start playing a Laya Healthcare ad/podcast. I don’t mind ads popping up throughout the app but this is very intrusive and the only way I could stop it was to close out of the app. Decided to delete it altogether as it was so annoying. Pity as the app is quite good otherwise.
