  1. I bought the OCR addition on 3G phone. Bought iPhone 4. How do I enable the OCR again without paying for it again?

  2. Hi Geoff,

    Just press the unlock button in my Word Finder app. It will ask you if you want to buy again, but if you do proceed, it will tell you that you already bought it and won't be charged. Just be sure you are logged in to the account that you bought the upgrade.

  6. Bought the OCR app on 9/19. It worked pretty well with only a few mistakes. It was deleted and I purchased it again two days ago. It does not bring in more than 5 percent of the board and nothing for the tray. What gives?

  7. Hi Bill,

    Can you email me the screenshot that you had problem loading to "loktaifung@gmail.com". I'll personally check it out. Thanks. Also, what version iphone or ipod touch do you have?

  8. I purchased as well, and got upgrade. Now when I pull in an OCR it shows a "Y" in several spaces and I have to move them out. Thoughts on how to resolve that? I have iPhone4

  10. Mmmmm, that's pretty cool to hear. First time I ever hear Apple solving my problems, instead of creating it :-)

  11. How do I stop the y', v's, u's and w's from popping up all over the board? I have the iphone 4. Thank you, Steve

  12. My Iphone is the 3.1.3 version - I bought the upgrade with the OCR function as well. Are you saying that once Apple releases it, there will be a notification for the update and that will fix the problem? My 7 tiles don't show up at all and letters are all over the board. Looks like a bug got in.

  13. Mine looks like Larry's in the comment above with random scattered letters and the rack contains blank tiles after the last update. I'm using the iPhone 3G. How do I fix the problems?

  14. Also, how do you toggle the magnifier on and off? It is very annoying the way it is set up right now. It would be more useful if the magnifier worked like the one in the "Words with Friends" App where the whole section is magnified and not just the area under the current tile being placed.

  16. Bought the OCR app in Sept...LOVED IT! paid extra for OCR...LOVED it.. It worked pretty well until the 'update' came out. Now I get random scattered letters and the rack contains blank tiles after the last update.I deleted and I purchased it again two days ago so it would be 'reinstalled' it--hoping it would 'heal itself'. All I got for that was CHARGED again--and it still has the same problem! I have the original I-phone, and like I said, the app worked great--until the so-called 'update'. I am emailing the two screenshots to you at "loktaifung@gmail.com" as you requested an earlier poster to do so you can see what it is doing. I would like to have a refund for AT LEAST the 2nd app I downloaded-I should not have to pay to have it reinstalled. I contacted I-Tunes but they said I have to contact you for help.
    Sincerely,
    szeq

  17. has anyone here received a response from the developer? I see multiple questions with the same issues I am having but no solutions...I have posted here, emailed 'loktaifung@gmail' directly, and 'reported a problem in ITunes' whose response was to 'contact the developer'.
    It is frustrating because the app worked Beautifully until the update...now it doesn't work at all..wish I would hear back from them!

  18. I purchased the OCR for my itouch and when I load a screen shot, it just puts several 'V's all over the board and I have to move them off. Any idea how to get my money back. Waste of money unless someone can fix it.

  19. Well, I'm getting nothing. None of the screens will complete loading. Often , the app won't even open without multiple attempts. I have done the app update and a recent update on my 3G iPhone. Suggestions? I really like the app. But now I can't use it at all.

  20. I purchased the iPad version and it works great except that I cannot clear the boards. As per the notes, I have shaken the iPad but no luck.
    Anyone else having a similar problem ?
    Andy, any idea how to resolve this ?
