What's new in version 7.5.2
If you lost data during the migration process in the previous update: We've added a new "Restore Lost Data" button in Settings to recover any data lost during the migration process in the previous version of the app (LookUp 7.5). If your collections didn't show up after the migration process, please try using the Restore Lost Data setting to recover the data. (This should work without any issue if you didn't delete and reinstall the app after the update)

Fixes an issue where sometimes the watchOS Complication wouldn't update despite the app showing the new Word of the Day
Fixes an issue where sometimes the migration assist would fail to migrate legacy data.
