Won’t run

Same issue as the previous post. The icon is on my phone, but won’t start. It starts to open, but closes prior to starting.

How do I get a refund?

This was fixed with the 1.1 update. Please let us know if you have any future questions or problems. Sorry for inconvenience. Thanks, Dave

Won’t run

I bought your app. I use an iPad Pro (11”) running iPadOS 13.2.2. Your app won’t run at all. As soon as I launch, I see it starting then it crashes/quits. I have tried force quitting the app and relaunching - no help. So I removed/deleted app and redownloaded- no help. I restarted my iPad - no help. Please issue a fix or patch or give me refund.

Developer Response ,

The 1.1 update in Nov. 2019 fixed this issue. Please run the updater if you continue to have a problem.
