Version 2.0

***PLEASE NOTE: if you're updating from a previous version of WordPower Lite, this update will likely cause the app to crash on startup. We are working on this unfortunate bug and hope to have a fix very soon. If you have already updated and are having the crash on startup, you can fix this by deleting the app from both your device and iTunes and redownloading it from the App Store. This workaround will delete your word bank, so if you have a lot of words saved, we suggest waiting for the update to fix this.

This bug DOES NOT affect new users for whom version 2.0 is their first.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience this bug has caused.***
