Version 1.1 has become an embarrassment

Rather than subject myself to the tension of wondering whether Apple would choose to remove RatioKey 1.1 from the App Store, I have chosen to remove it myself. My apologies to the handful of you who might still have found some value in it.

I can't promise that I will ever manage to publish an updated (reconceptualized) version, but it is still my intention to make the attempt, although that project may not bear the same name.

RatioKey partially broken in iOS 9.2.1

Well, it's been a good run, far better than I had any right to expect, but after five years RatioKey 1.1 is no longer entirely functional.

I was already gearing up to do an update, but this development adds some urgency to that intention.

I'm still undecided about whether to support anything at all from version 1.1 since it was less than thoroughly well thought out. Some elements will most likely make it into version 2.0, but certainly not the very difficult to use keyboard arrangement. Expect something really quite different!

Time frame? Can't say with certainty, but the project is moving from the back burner to the front.
