Grace App 3.1 - This changes EVERYTHING!

Image
Just in time for our 6th Birthday, Grace App 3.1 is here in the iTunes App store.
Grace App now has Category editing, adding and sorting to truly personalise the App to the user:




"Category folders contain a selection of pre-loaded images. Users can add their own images using the camera or access any saved and stored images in their photo library, including images saved from the web.

All images can be labeled with text, deleted, or rearranged to suit the individual user. The latest update includes the ability to add new Category folders, with a selection of your own photos. All Categories can be rearranged and renamed as required. Detailed instructions are available in the Guide to Grace App at www.graceapp.com."


If you own it already, just go to the App store and check for the update, then install.

And if you love it, please leave a review on iTunes, go on, go on, GO ON!

If you have been thinking about getting it, go and download it now!

Minimum iOS is 8 for the updat…

They may see every strand of hair on your head individually with more detail than a dandruff commercial, hence the need to push your hair off your face.


And your eyes might be so distracting that they have to look away, in order to pay attention.

Touch can be too light to feel or too intense to bear, or both!
And sound most unfortunately can be very distorted, either because they hear everything and cannot tune in to what’s important, ie. your voice, or because they only hear …
