    If you use the app, please leave a review in the relevant app store. It will help me decide whether to continue to offer the app or look for an alternative.

    If the members like the app, we'll continue with it :).

    Feel free to comment in this thread as well. All feedback appreciated, reviews in the app store especially so.

    PS - Don't hold it against the app if you are getting logged out. That is a separate issue with the site that I am trying to get worked out and is unrelated to the app itself.

    Thanks,
    Amin

    Dont know if it helps, but I use safari on ipad mini II.
    Used the (or an earlier version of) app, but always came back to safari.

    Tried the app a while ago, never got into it. I just use Safari on my IPad and iPhone.

    I generally avoid site-specific apps, unless they offer useful functionality that the regular website doesn't, as I have enough apps on my iPad and iPhone already. There's no Mac app for mu-43 so I use Safari on my Mac, and therefore it's no big deal to transition back and forth to Safari on an iDevice. mu-43 renders reasonably well in Safari on my iPad, particularly in landscape orientation, and offers all the features I need. I would encourage you to direct your efforts into maintaining the website rather than divert resources to a stand-alone app.

    I don't know, while I use Safari a lot, I like the new iOS app. I would suggest that those who haven't tried the current app do so before commenting. I think that Amin does a great job on maintaining his website, having a mobile options does not mean that he is less diligent in maintaining his www website.

    Unfortunately, the app developer has just dropped my account, which means the app is no more :(. I will have to look for another app solution.

    In the meanwhile, the mobile website works well, and you can get notifications via Pushover or Pushbullet by enabling them here: https://www.mu-43.com/account/external-accounts

    The default notifications work great on Chrome on Android 6.

    If you find a new app dev will the current app work again or will there be a new download?

    It will have to be a new download.

    If only the same were true for iOS, we'd have no need for an app!

    Yeah I agree I liked it. Too often an app which emulates a webpage is formatted in a way which reduces it to a smaller set of features or has quirky navigation. This version was perfect, sorry it didn't work out for you. (us)

    Wow, you don't own the source code? Yikes. I really liked the app and found out far easier than a simple mobile browser. Sorry this happened.

    Is there a way to move or remove the camera and pen buttons? They are in the way of the lower menu.
