Update for larger screen size?

Nice app but it seems to be stuck in the iPhone 4 era, displaying black bars on top and bottom on my iPhone 5 screen.

I'm hoping for an update because the extra screen real estate would be very helpful especially in an app like this.

Helpful keyboard but otherwise disappointing interface

The custom keyboard that comes with this build of gambit-c is very useful, making most needed keys readily available. However, the file editor is rather awkward and basic, and the REPL is far more primitive than what comes with PC builds.

If you want to try the Scheme language on your desktop or laptop, definitely try out Gambit; it is one of the most well known and mature implementations and has a great interactive REPL. This mobile version was disappointing.

This new release has fixed crashes on 64bit devices. It now works great on my iPad. Thank you.
