iOS9 Slide Over Feature
iOS9 for iPad has this cool feature called Slide Over. Where you can invoke an overlay screen on the right side of the screen and pick a secondary app to use. Sadly, Jishop is not available for selection. Can you add this feature? Thanks.
How is it that there are no ratings for this excellent app?? I use this app daily as I learn & practice kanji. I'm not ready to step up to the "advanced" level yet but won't hesitate when I get to that point. Learning Nihongo? Get this, you'll like it.
