    I’ve already purchased “Hoe to Cook Everything”, can it be upgraded or do I need to buy another app?

    Mark, will VB6 be available as an app any time soon? I bounce between two residences and much easier to carry apps on ipad than lugging several books back and forth every few days. Looking forward to VB6!

    I had bought the: how to cook everything, cooking basics, app. It now keeps saying that i can’t open it until it is upgraded. Will that happen?
