  • No update at all for almost two years. Gone for Good ?

    By An Independent Reviewer
    This app has not been updated for almost two years and I can only think it is now abandonware. Such a shame. I think that app has gone for Good ?

    Use it for all my documents. Very easy to use and fast as well. When will you come out with an update that will support iPhone Xs bigger screen?

    By Geoff Rogers
    I would have given this a 5 star rating based on previous usage. But since updating my iPad Air to ios11, this app crashes randomly. When it’s restarted it uses a ‘slower engine’. Please can this be fixed as it has spoiled an otherwise excellent app. PLEASE FIX IT !!
  • Where is the new file iOS 11 support

  • Decent app ruined by not supporting the iPhone X

    By Talster71
    I’ve used this app for a number of years. I’m very disappointed that the developer has yet (not sure if they will be) to update the app for the iPhone X larger screen. Please update this app for the iPhone X.

    no support for iphone X

    By JTY1967
    This is a very good App. However, rather like Apple, these App producers have jumped on the Band Waggon of updating IOS systems = an opportunity to squeeze more money out of customers. Apple does this by making existing phones / devices slow down when the new IOS is loaded, resulting in the false and forced need to upgrade. These guys have done this by not updating the previous App to work with IOS 11. This is a real sham and, unfortunately, representative of society today. Well done Apple for again making record proffits and paving the way for others to do so - but at who's expense!!!

  • Not supporting iPhone X

    By Nickpick79
    For the price of the app I would expect an update for iPhone X. But that still has not happened even though the developer kit has been available for months now.
