Just over a week after Marvin for iPad was updated to version 2.0 and Marvin for iPhone and iPod touch was released, both apps have been updated to version 2.1 with a number of improvements. Both editions of the highly rated and highly customizable Marvin have been updated with the following:
Furtermore, Marvin for iPad has been improved so that columns no longer touch each other in two-column mode when the minimum margin value is set, and so that the last tab selected in the reading "Aa" menu is duly remembered. Fixes for a bug that causes the Dropbox custom search directory to not be saved properly and for another that causes a home screen display issue on iOS 6 are included in the new version of Marvin for iPad as well. As for Marvin for iPhone and iPod touch, it has also been improved with a new sideways shake gesture in the reading "Aa" menu to move forward. In addition, the app's note editor has been redesigned for better accessibility. The new versions of Marvin for iPad and Marvin for iPhone and iPod touch are available now in the App Store. Marvin for iPad is available for free, while Marvin for iPhone and iPod touch is available for $4.99. Note that Marvin for iPad is compatible with iPad running iOS 5.1 or later, while Marvin for iPhone and iPod touch is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later.
