Stopped working with my galaxy note 2 all of a sudden I have had this app for atleast an year on my galaxy note 2 and had actually paid for around 8 wordlists seperately - all of a sudden this application is now incompatible with my note 2. I guess they must have updated this app (funny - it works just fine on a galaxy S4). Given I have paid both for the application and the wordlists, it is unfair for the publisher to update the app to something incompatible with my note 2 - which is a fairly new phone. It is really weird.
