What's New

• Improves compatibility with new iPad Pro models.
• Fixes an issue in Fretboard Interval Identification where the "Distance Limit" customization would not always work.
• Changes scoring for certain Challenge Mode customizations. When a "Question Limit" is set and "Multiple Attempts" is turned off, any unanswered questions will be counted as incorrect when the challenge ends.
