    greetings!

    since the app is advertised to run on iOS5.1, I figured it would run on my 1st-gen iPad (which is updated to 5.1, and runs lots of other such apps). unfortunately, the app crashes. :(

    anyone out there running the app successfully on a 1st-gen iPad?
    any tips?

    i can run the cloud version in safari, but would like to run the app sometimes too!

    cheers!

    looking a bit more into this...

    i've now removed a bunch of apps i don't use, done a hard re-set, re-initialized all settings, and re-installed the app.

    still no joy. :(

    anybody? :)

    or will this just simply not run on a 1st-gen iPad?

    cheers!

    I've installed it on iPad version 1 w iOS 5.1.1 but on startup it briefly shows the iPhone screen in the middle then goes blank. I can see by double clicking the home button that the app stays running but the display has disappeared.
    Sad, since I was hoping to dedicate this old ipad with it's great battery life to just this one app. Oh well.

    thanks for confirming this, Juanito! yeah, it's too bad it doesn't run... but good to have confirmation that the problem isn't just me... :)

    cheers!
