How can I find a photo of my contact in Clever Contacts on the web?

Clever Contacts can assist you to find a suitable photo if you don't have one already in your photo library.  Just follow these steps:
  1. Find the person by scrolling or searching through one of your group lists. Tap on them to see the detailed person view.
  2. Tap of their photo.
  3. Now tap on "Assisted Web Search". This will open a window in the Safari web browser on the Google Image Search page. The search term will be automatically set to the full name of the person.
  4. Scroll through and see if any of the images are suitable. Remember to also check that you are allowed to use the image (it isn't licensed or in some other way protected). Tap on that image to bring up a larger version.
  5. Now hold down on the photo until a dialog pops up with a "Save Image" button. Tap this to save a copy of the image to your photo library.
  6. Return to Clever Contacts by tapping the "Done" button in the top left corner of the screen.
  7. Finally tap "Choose Photo" and select the recently downloaded image from your photo library. Now tap "Done" again in the top left and your entry will have the photo displayed you found on the web.

Where is my data stored - can anyone else access it?

All of the app data is stored on your local device and, in the case of Clever Contacts or P&F Charts , in your own personal Apple iCloud account.  It is not shared with the developer or available to anyone else.  Only those that have access to your devices have access to your data. See below for additional information regarding data storage for particular apps. Clever Contacts All the contact related information (name, address, phone numbers, emails, contact photo etc) in Clever Contacts is actually saved in and read from your Contacts App on the device.  Membership in groups (e.g. Family), notes, photos associated with notes and other settings data is maintained by Clever Contacts in separate files. These will either be only on your local device or in your iCloud account depending on which storage option you have chosen in the Clever Contacts “Settings” screen.

P&F Charts - no prices?

Sometimes you may see a stock reflected in a watchlist that shows NO prices like in the example above. This happens when you have added a new stock on a different device connected to the same iCloud account.  The stock details have synced but the price data does not (by design).  Just tap on the stock and the app will automatically try and fetch all the price data from our stock supplier for you.

P&F Charts - Where does the Stock Data come from?

P&F Charts sources all of its stock data from the Alpha Vantage service.  This is an amazing service which provides a huge range of daily stock prices for stocks, indices and currencies from all over the world.  See their website for further information.  It is also important to remember that AlphaVantage update the daily prices sometime after the close of trading for a specific stock.  If you want intraday data, try using an intraday interval (e.g. hourly).  You can change this on the Parameters screen for a specific stock in your watchlists. However, it sometimes (not very often) inexplicably drops a particular stock for some period of time.  The search will say they support it (and probably did until yesterday) but will report no data available when asked for the latest prices.  Unfortunately this is completely out of our control and Alpha Vantage unfortunately does not have a support capability that can answer questions about particular stock price availability.  If this happe
