What's New

• Improved: The keyboards for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been enlarged to match the size of the standard iOS keyboards.

• Fixed two bugs for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s users: One that caused the puzzle to jump when typing letters and one that wouldn't let the puzzle be zoomed out.
