Used to love this app

I use Upad for iCloud. Upad has the best writing feel on iPad in my opinion but lately, I've lost a number of documents I've annotated with Upad. They simply disappear. Today I also noticed that exporting an annotated document to the Files app, whether locally or to iCloud, simply doesn't work. The documents are never exported.

Clicking on the "App Support" link in the App Store leads nowhere (it's a 404). I wrote to the developer before to report issues like these and never heard back.

Time to move on and look for a better app! Bye bye Upad!

Was good

Such a good app until the new update. Constantly crashes and doesn't auto save resulting in lost data. Cant even directly upload to dropbox anymore. Wish i could go back to the old version

Fix the bugs!

You guys added a save button on the top menu bar. If I forget to press that button, I will have the possibility to lose the unsaved part. It is supposed to be saved automatically isn't it? I used this app to take notes in class, and all my writings just disappeared right after the class ended. Copy 7 pages of class notes for me(it happened twice) or just fix the memory bug!
