Mrzouz ,

Wow playing dirty & pay twice without a discount.!!

Update again.
Again an update to change the name of the app and fix teletext issue !!! Or in other words to simply remove the negative reviews of the previous version which was the first thing you see in reviews. Now u see blank as no comments yet on the new version.
I seriously request everyone to update their reviews to show in the new version reviews.
I wish I didnt support this app as there is a cheaper alternative "vu". Also I wish I can give lower rating than 1 star.

So the developers decided that we should pay again for their product. They made the old owners a lite version and asking us to pay again for the pro version.
And of-course we have to pay full amount for the pro version. So much of appreciation for old customers.
Also they removed the iphone 4 from supported devices and other devices too.
They simply ruined it.

Making us pay again

I already bought this app and you provided us with lite version!!! Thats the worst customer care ever. You are the worst managment ever to decide that. I really don't recommend anyone to use your app.
