Work In Progress

I’m currently upgrading the Japanese app core data files to include radicals, full component breakdown and detailed reference codes for 6000 kanji (*cough*).

Flash! will also be getting some TLC with more standardised import/export, folders and multi side support sometime in the new year.

Dropbox Update

dropbox2

From the next update (for all apps) the Dropbox directory will change to “\Apps\StickyStudy..

What this means is that your old data (in Dropbox) will be unavailable for “Restore” (in the app) unless you move the old decks into “\Apps\StickyStudy..” If you’re not concerned with losing old backups, just backup your decks after the update, continue as normal and have a great day.

StickyStudy now uses sandboxing instead of root access giving increased privacy and security.
