V2 is a complete rebuild of the app from the ground up. V1 was built using the Windev Mobile 16 platform but issues arising from that meant that, for V2, we started from scratch using the Android SDK directly. This has led to a faster, smaller and more robust system. We no longer maintain a local database of basic details which means that you are never out of date.
