Errors in App

I bought the first hr and it worked flawlessly upon purchasing the second money left my account but when downloading I get an error saying it cannot verify purchase. Really frustrated and unhappy

Good but can't transfer purchases to another device & discriminates non-social media people

Plus: I have enjoyed the audiobook but find this better in relation yo helping me read the language
1) can't transfer purchases to another device, would have to pay again
2) can only change settings if you have a Facebook or Twitter account - this is discriminatory to those of us who don't wish to partake in social media

Purchases do not flow to subsequent versions

Initially excellent but since the newer versions have been rolled out the original purchases are not recognised.
