  • Mixed feelings

    By Titelderseed
    I’m an avid user of your app, but I can’t turn a blind eye on the irregularity of notifications. One given day, I see a banner reminding me about the word of the day. Then, this is perhaps off for a week or even more, and it has to be me the one that must open the app and retrieve the word. I can do it, but your notifications service is hands down awful. Please fix it
