Important News about iOS 8

Apple is expected to announce the release of iOS 8 (the new version of its operating system for the iPad and iPhone) and a new larger iPhone, on 9th September. The current versions of many apps, from Special iApps and other developers, are NOT FULLY COMPATIBLEwith iOS 8, because of substantial changes Apple has made.

We've been working hard over the last 3 months to update our apps, and anticipate releasing new versions later this month, that will look and behave just like the current versions. We suggest DELAYING UPDATING your devices to iOS 8 until you are sure there are compatible versions of all the apps you use.

Before you do update your iPad or iPhone to iOS 8, we strongly recommend BACKING UP YOUR PERSONAL DATA in our apps, as there's always a small risk with a major operating system update that things can go wrong.

Please DON'T RELY ON iCloud, as photos, text and audio you have added in our apps are not stored in iCloud. Instead, to be safe, use the EXPORT facility in our apps to email the contents in the app's own format, and save the email attachments somewhere else. If you are at all uncertain about how to do this, please contact us, tell us which apps you use, and we'll explain exactly what to do. It's better to be safe than sorry!
