Urdu font is nearly unreadable in phone.

I am using this app for a long time now, app is great. I can read in all three languages English and Hindi is fine but when we switch language to Urdu font becomes very small. Zoom in and zoom out doesn’t work on home page. It would be better if you guys can increase the size of Urdu font.

Back button doesn’t work properly in IOS. Chitra shayri and some other options also never work and load. And it sown an error every time when there is an audio option available for some ghazal and we click on it.

Saviour of a lost tradition

This app is really the best place for reading all kinds of Shayari and ghazals. I personally am a very big fan of Mirza Ghalib Sir and Mir Taqi Mir Sir and I also write some shayari myself so this place is like a wonderland for me. Rekhta is an age old art of poetry which is almost an endangered art in India where I live so I am proud to say that this app is trying to save this wonderful art style. This app has also helped me a lot as I myself write some shayari from time to time. “Thank you Rekhta Foundation” is all I want to say!!

App Crash

I feel obliged to mention that Rekhta is by far the best available site for Urdu poetry one can find on the Internet and even the app UI is pretty satisfying.
But the app keeps crashing on my iPhone XR running on iOS 14.4 whenever I open any Nazm or Ghazal or for that matter anything that I search from the search bar.
It’s quite frustrating as it happens every single time so I basically can’t search for anything.

Developer Response ,

Dear User, thank you so much for the encouragement and sorry for the trouble at the same time. We are aware with the issue app is currently facing and our team is working to fix the same ASAP. Hopefully new update will be available soon at App Store. Team Rekhta
