[iOS] CC version 1.1.1 beta testers

Hello; I've just finished working on the next version (v1.1.1) of the iOS version and was wondering whether anyone would like to beta test it. It's not a big update, but I've changed a few things behind the scenes. Essentially, some people were experiencing crashing when connecting as a wireless device, and I've tried to make that work better.

All you'd need to do is connect as a wireless device, disconnect again, fully close the app (double tap on the home button then swipe it away), and relaunch. If everything seems to be working, in the sense that it hasn't crashed and you can still see your books, then that's it!

I don't anticipate any problems with this update, but I'd like to be sure before releasing it.

If you'd like to help beta test, then please just send me your email address in a private message. Since the app is now live, we'll use Apple's testing system (TestFlight) rather than what we've used before (Crashlytics). This should make it easier for people to manage. I only need a few people though, and you need to have already bought the app.

I'll be able to send out the update once Apple approves this version; I don't know whether they test beta apps more quickly, but they're usually pretty quick these days. It should be available in a day or two.

Thanks!

Turns out Apple approved the beta app very quickly, so that's now going out to the people who've replied so far.

One other thing I should have mentioned: when you launch this version for the first time, you should see a screen asking you to wait while it "Updating database...". For me, that took around 1.5 seconds per thousand books. Once that's happened, that screen should only appear briefly on future launches. If you end up doing a big book transfer again, you'll see that screen again.

Thanks Terisa and pwalker. I'll submit this version to go live now.

As to it being faster, I'd like to take credit for that but it's probably just that the database software CC uses was updated. Either way, I'm happy it's working better
