Sort problem on webOS

Just in the last week, something has changed in my copy of Crosswords for webOS - where I used to see the current day's puzzles at the top of the list (when using the calendar sort), now they have started appearing at the bottom, with the very oldest crosswords appearing at the top. This wouldn't be a huge problem, except that every time I delete a crossword, it takes me back to the top! I've got several years worth of old (unsolved) crosswords in the app, so it takes about 5 minutes just to scroll down to the bottom where the current puzzles are stored. I keep old puzzles so I have something to do when I am on a plane or otherwise don't have a link to grab new puzzles. I probably don't need 2 years of old puzzles, but there is no easy way to set a limit on this.

I haven't downloaded any new updates for the app, nor can I find any options to control which order the puzzles are sorted in. The only thing I can think of is that maybe I have overflowed some internal limit of how many puzzles the app can hold. If that is the case, then I would like some sort of tool or option to make it easier to auto-discard the oldest unsolved puzzles - going through and discarding these one by one would be unbearable.

Or if there is an option that I unknowingly set that changed things around, then please help me set it back. Alternatively, a keyboard shortcut to take me to the other end of the list would be greatly appreciated if there is no way to set the sort back to the way it used to work.

    To toggle the sort ascending/descending order, just tap on the active sort button at the bottom of the screen. This will change the order from oldest-to-newest and vice versa.

    If you have any additional questions or comments, please let us know. Thanks!
