Needs an update. When I try to zoom in on my documents they are blurry and unreadable. Adding info from Legacy seems more like converting and then downloading my Legacy info, not syncing like with Evernote or other programs that sync info. Was not worth the cost.

I am one that is usually reluctant to download updates for at least a month. But I held my breath and updated.

I am LOVING this latest update. So many new and improved features.

I’m not a syncing type. I use Families so that I can carry my data base along. So no feedback on that.

But. The features. Wahoo!

Crashing upon launch

With the last update, app won't open, but crashes immediately. I have iOS 9.5.3, but that still should work.
