  • Dear SP TEAM.
    A few months ago I bought an iPad 1 with os 5.1.1
    I installed your sofeware and have used it in my classroom for note taking and homework. I give students a printout as they leave. LOVE IT.

    today I received your updates and the whole program has gone crazy. The screen jumps sideways and upside down while I punch in notes. The AirPrint stopped working. The midi export to MasterStudio works but MS can't load and play the files. And much much more.!

    Tried the usual reset chash. Turn off and reboot. Then delete program and reload fresh. Still Not Working.

    Can I get the old program back and how do I do that please?

    Hi Mr. Natural,

    It looks like the difficulties you've been having are due to iOS compatibility issues. Although backwards compatibility has become increasingly difficult for us, we'll try to make the next update more reliable for first generation iPads.

    Unfortunately, there is currently no way to roll back versions. We'll consider adding this option in the near future.

    Thanks for your patience.
