I'm slightly disappointed with this app I bought the paid version, but when I launched it on my Galaxy Note 3 it didn't work at all but the free version works properly and smoothly. I don't know why the paid version doesn't work on my Galaxy Note 3,It gets stuck forever and it doesn't allow you to use the main menu because it doesn't show anything at all just keeps showing the loading logo over and over again. Please help me to get this resolved!
