Ratings and Reviews
I'm happy to say that the new version 2.8 has fixed all previous bugs, some of which are mentioned in older reviews. The app is working well on both iphone and ipad, and we have received numerous happy reports from very satisfied users.
Thank you to those who reported the bugs and thank you for your patience while we fixed them. Since the app relies on 3rd-party links with the "more info" buttons, it is likely that some of these will fail some of the time. We are trying to stay on top of these and update them without creating too many new versions of the app. Your feedback is always appreciated.
Loved this app the first 2 days, I really enjoyed the interesting facts presented. Loved this app on the 3rd day when it was Shabbat and no fact was presented in honor of G-d's rest. On the fourth day, first day of the week, I received notification of a new fact - but when I opened the app there was no information and no history!! I could not find an address to report my problem. Did I waste the money I spent to purchase this app? I guess we'll see on day 5 if I find a new fact and my history reinstated. I hope this app turns out to be all the designer promised. So for today, it's 3 balls and one strike - working on a full count? or perhaps tomorrow I'll get a home run! Indeed, I hope this game will win 5 stars in the long run.
App simply doesn't work
The app worked reasonably okay for the first few days after I downloaded it. Then it sent "notifications" with the first half-sentence of its message, but once I logged onto my device the message was nowhere to be found. The "today" link doesn't work, the "history" link doesn't work, and the others don't work either. I've deleted this useless app from both my phone and my pod. It's a shame, because for those first few days, while it worked, it was fun.
OK -- I gave it another vhance. Deleted it and re-downloaded from App Store. STILL DOES NOT RESPOND TO TAPPING ON ANY OF THE LINKS AT BOTTOM -- not "info and settings," not "history," not bookmarks" -- not anything.
Grump. I shall delete it AGAIN.
