Version 1.2.3

Thank you for using Yoritsuki.
This update adds new items and makes some improvements.
As with the last time, this is only a minor update.
_________________________________________

New in version 1.2.3

- [NEW] Japanese New Year’s items have been added to the accessories (KOMONO).
- [NEW] Dinner items(YUUGE) have been added to the accessories (KOMONO).

With this addition, a hierarchical menu of KOMONO content was created.

- [NEW] A function to turn the background sounds on and off has been added.
* The background sounds are off by default, because opinion is divided over the background sounds. When the sounds are off, the application can be closed down with the Home button, which avoids battery drain. To play the sounds again, please turn them on.

* Older models that do not support multitasking (including the iPhone 3G and second-generation iPods) do not have an on/off function for background sounds.

Minor adjustments
- [Improved] The problem of items and settings not being saved has been fixed.
- [Improved] The bug that causes application crashes on the iPod Touch 2nd Plus has been fixed.
