What's New in Version 3.4.1
Fix the issue that data set cannot be renamed on iOS 7.
Slider Bar Missing
The slider bar appears to be missing for most graphs functions such as histogram, normal distribution, etc... I'm not too sure if iOS updates affected the slider bar, but it used to be present in the past.
Can not even open the thing!
But they want you to upgrade for $3.99!!
Bait and switch app!
Don't bother with this "criippleware."
