iOS11 update

Very funny. When I wrote in Simplenote a critical note to AppStore about the program, the note disappeared.
Once again, I love this program and I use it on every platform (Mac, iPhone, iPad). However the version for iPad on iOS11 has a serious bug. When you tap Search window, the icon Tags on the top left disappears. Also Cancel on the top right disappears. Result: you can only search in the Tag/Folder that was chosen previously and you can add a new note only to the Tag/Folder you are in. iPhone version works normally.
Another missing feature is hyperlinks to www when URL is given. You need to copy it to Safari to open webpage. Missing on iPhone and iPad. [I use iPhone 7 and iPad Pro 2016].

I totally not recommend!

After working just fine for a week all my notes disappeared. I have tried to sign in using web browser, but it seems that I’m not able to do it as well. I’ve also sent a request to change my password, but I still didn’t get any sort of reply. Avoid it!!
