I used this app for some time but deleted it a few months ago, thinking I didn't use it all that much. However, Michael Hanson's announcement of the new version caused me to rethink this and I downloaded the app again early this morning. I'm still using an iPhone 5 with iOS 7.1.2 (it would take a bribe of about a thousand bucks to get me to upgrade at this point due to the bug infestation in the various flavors of iOS 8). When I started the app, it immediately crashed and sent me back to the home screen. Resetting the phone and turning it on and off and redownloading the app had no effect. So I suspect the app developers have forgotten all of us who'd rather have a relatively-bug-free iOS and who don't give a darn about bling so are still using iOS 7.1.2.

ah well.
