Unfortunately POETRY has stopped It used to work on my Droid RAZR Maxx but on galaxy s5 the above message appears after spinning. A screen shot was sent to the poetry foundation: no response.

4.3/5 Not a fan of the UI, I wish there was another way of searching moods other than the wheel. A sorting option is also needed, based either on number of reads, author, alphabetical, chronologic etc. Lastly, there are some uneeded spaces between the poems lines. But overall, great app with the possibility of offline reading also.

Loved this app when it worked I used to use this constantly on a daily basis. But some update several months ago made it stop working on my phone. It crashes every time i try to run it. I'd love to have this working again.
