A quick update. After getting in touch with the devs they found a fix for the issue immediately and now all is great again. TY for the quick fix. Was loving this app until the last update, now I can no longer see my notes just a black screen (dark mode) or a white screen ( light mode) with place holder icons. The notes are there, if I randomly tap a part of the black screen whatever is there will open but it's a shot in the dark as to what note is there. Samsung s22 ultra.

I am so frustrated!! I have used this app for years and have absolutely LOVED it. However.. for the past few weeks(basically when the "new and improved" updates began and now being charged an annual fee) I'm having all the same issues that apparently everyone else is having(according to all the bad reviews). Every time I try to add to a note, it scrolls all the way to the bottom of the page. If I underline or highlight one word, it underlines/highlights the entire note,etc. PLEASE FIX ASAP!!!!!

Hi Lisa, We're terribly sorry for this inconvenience. We're working on fixing this issue from our end on priority. Meanwhile, please try turning off the predictive texts on the keypad and check if you could write notes as usual. Please try this and let us know the status.

Wonderful app! Love that it's free, love the customization and unlimited # of books & cards! The only reason I rate 4/5 instead of 5 is because other than changing the number of columns in a table, I can't figure out how to change the size of the cells. Due to my screen size (or a setting I'm overlooking) any table over 2 cells wide doesn't fit on my screen and I don't believe I can pan out to see the entire table at once, which more or less defeats the purpose of a table layout altogether.
