What's new in version 3.2.4
Bug fixes and minor improvements:

1. Changed wording of Sponsor in-app purchase to make it clear it will unlock All in-App purchases. Also if you already have purchased all In-Apps, this option is now disabled
2. Twitter button wasn't working

Many of the features which before where available as part of the free App are now only available as in-App purchases. We didn't want to do this but we need to recover costs. Sometimes we might make some of them free for a limited period. Check our Twitter account to stay informed (@portablepoetry) or get in touch.
