Import from Dropbox broken
As of Sep 28, app (on IPad and IPhone) can't import from Dropbox. Error is:
The operation couldn't be completed
(dropbox.com error 400.)
According to Dropbox https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/API-support/API-v1-is-now-retired/m-p/244077#M13666
this seems to mean the app hasn't updated to V2 of the API, and they finally pulled the plug after "retiring" it in June.
Ipad details from your feedback form (same problem occurs on IPhone)
Device: IPad (768x1024) iPad5,3
App: com.standalone.crosswords. v2.79.8 (2117)
This feature is important to me, so I hope this will be fixed VERY soon.

We've got an internal beta build that fixes this issue; would you like to give it a try?

You should receive a TestFlight invite for Crosswords. You'll need to download the (free) TestFlight app from the AppStore in order to install the beta.

Hi Ben: I installed Test Flight and loaded Crosswords in it, but I don't
think I got a new version: it says it is V 2.79.8 (2115): previously said V
Test Flight says 'What to test: fixed a problem when re-downloading puzzles
in weak WiFi/LTE signal areas'... which is not my issue. Still has the

Sorry, the new build is still waiting for review; it should be ready later today or tomorrow.

I expect you'll let me know when the new build is available. And if I need
to do something in TestFlight to get it.

Actually, it went live today. You should have received a notification, but if not, you can go into TestFlight and download the new version, 2.79.10 (2136).

I replied via Test Flight that the Dropbox problem was solved in the beta, and later replied that nothing else seemed to be broken. Sorry that did not make it here.

Great! I've been meaning to check up on you to see how it's going. Glad to see it's all working; we'll be releasing it this weekend, most likely.
Thanks for the followup!

Ben: this should maybe be private...
but you didn't see the feedback I submitted via Test Flight, or the email I
sent when the problem first arose to [email blocked] and via
feedback in the app.
You've got all these channels to submit issues, but mostly you don't seem
to be seeing them.
Now I know that your https://standalone.tenderapp.com/discussions/questions
is the place to go, but chances are, others don't and are frustrated using
the other avenues you offer.

I believe your original email was auto-forwarded to Tender, as that's our standard customer support mechanism. Unfortunately, we have no control over Test Flight feedback emails (those are managed by Apple; I'm currently looking in to why we didn't receive yours, as we normally do get those). Thanks for the feedback, we definitely need to do a better job messaging this stuff!
