  1. This iOS app has some technical issues. I’ve been using this iOS app since a year. I’ve been frequently trying to get it converted offline, it starts converting and immediately hangs the app. Lot of time I’ve uninstall & install the app but the problem isn’t solving. First I thought that my iPhone has some issues but when I took it to the service centre, I’ve come to know that my iPhone is okay.
    Apart from this app, my every app is running good.
    I guess you guys should take a look over this iOS app.
    Thank you!
