Onscreen keyboard don't work Very buggy, onscreen keyboard don't work. In skool daze can't play as it asks you if you wanna input your own names in the beginning you have to press y or n. But the keyboard don't work so can't play this classic speccy game. Also can't play the app offline as it says you have stolen the app. Really? Wish they had said its an online only app. Too late for refund. Avoid this app.
