Re: iGenii not showing all issues

if you turn off the internet (drop into airplane mode) you will not get hung up at 72%. But as Richard has suggested, delete the app and download the issues in the new version. it works just as well with only a few missing features.

Re: Mental Magic ~ SLATE OF MIND

I work in education (curriculum development) and one of the things we stress is that even as technology progresses, nothing beats a chalk board to get a point across. In my environment, we actually use a white board, but issues have come up when the markers run dry. Chalk doesn't have that problem.
