instructions & FAQ
WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 10.1:
Hope everyone loved the new list-item photo & alert enhancements in the last update. This one is all about iOS 8 and the two new iPhones. I've optimized the layout to take advantage of all the extra screen space on the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus. In addition, I've:
- Fixed a sticky-scrolling bug on several pages
- Fixed a swipe-to-delete bug on the packing list page
- Tweaked various functions to work well with iOS 6, 7 and 8
- Made improvements to iCloud auto-sync's stability & error-catching abilities
- Made my Shopping Pro app available via Apple's new 'Complete your Bundle' promo for only an extra $0.99 (vs full price of $2.99)
