New Update Available for iPad

IPadPhoneBIn my last communication to you, I shared that we were working on some improvements to the new iPad app. We have corrected many of the problems in a new update that is now available in the App Store, and we are continuing to work on a few other issues.

Our current solution is to continue bringing you regular updates on the new app until it delivers a better experience than the older version and much more.

With this latest update, you can now:

  • Copy and paste using books in your WORDsearch library
  • View books you have recently read
  • View only books that you have downloaded to your iPad
  • Sync Bibles and commentaries more reliably
  • Set your default Bible
  • Find book titles now sorted with “The,” “An” and “A” removed

Of course, we’re not stopping there. Some books you own may still not appear in the app and correcting this is a priority. The development team is still squashing bugs and preparing new features to make the best study experience possible for a mobile device. We are listening to your feedback, setting goals, endlessly testing the app and will be issuing further updates.

Many customers have asked us to bring back the old iPad app. Bringing back an older app is possible, but more difficult than one might imagine. We are working to bring back the old app which includes all your notes, bookmarks and highlights. At this time we have not yet received approval from Apple. I will let you know as soon as this option is available, and at that time, you will be able to run both apps on your iPad.

To recap: You now have the option to update your new app with the fixes listed above. In the days ahead I hope to tell you how to restore your old app until the the new version provides all the functions it should (including your notes, bookmarks and highlights). Thank you again for your patience and understanding.

    Thanks, updating it as I type!

  2. I want to say thank-you to everybody involved in the development and responsible for the updating of the WORDsearch app. The latest version is a vast improvement and much easier to use.

    Thank-you for your hard work and dedication!

    Why don’t you add my books from my library to the old Wordsearch “Classic” ? Hardly any of my old books and commentaries have been added since I have had the app. If you already have permission to use the books on the iPad and iPhone and you add books to the new iPad app then why can’t you add my old books to my old version of the app??

    I hesitate to add many more books to my old app until they start giving me my old books from my purchased library onto my Old “Classic” Wordsearch iPad app.

      Hi Charles, books were discontinued from the old app when we decided to use the newer, blue one. The green app is still just a temporary fix, so there are no plans to add any more books to that app. You can see your newer books on the blue app and keep the green on with your old, if that helps. Sorry about that!
