login_screen If you have some older version of the app, and you do an upgrade, you might have some problems with a user interface. In that situation, we suggest you to uninstall the old version and install the new one.

This version makes a solid ground for the final development of our branded iPhone apps, which we already test and which should be available to purchase very soon.

You can download our iPhone app from the appStore.
