Nov 11th: The update v3.74 was released to all today to ensure compatibility with Android 14 devices and fix the app crash. Apologies for the wait and troubles caused. We hope the app is now working properly again.

Nov 10th: an error was found in the payment module. We are working on the fix and hope to release the final version this evening. If you are working with Android 14 and cannot open the app, we can add you to the V3.74T test group as a quick fix, which fixes the crash. In this case please send us your email/Google ID.

Nov 9: we are preparing a fix update (3.74) for Android 14 users. Android 14 requires an updated billing library. Update v3.74T was released for an internal test group with around 40 users. We are waiting for feedback to clarify any errors before releasing to the public.

Nov 8: the fix update version 3.73 was approved by Google and is now available. Please check for the update on Google Play app. This will fix the crash from the previous version 3.71 from last Sunday. Those of you who see the Beta Test version 3.73; this the same version as per official release so no action needed. We hope this resolves all issues. If you still face issues please contact us.

*If you have reinstalled the app and lost your data, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the in-app purchases are made. On the purchases page, press the restore button (green checkmarks appear next to items). If that doesn't work, please purchase the item again as Google will remember the purchase during the process. If not, I can issue a refund.
  2. With every update, the app automatically creates a data backup and saves it in the 'Downloads' folder (file name: data backup & date .motad). Please import this to restore the data history. Importing goes like this: create an email and attach this file and send yourself this email. Then tap on the attachment and open it with the MO app (the MO app should appear for selection) which triggers the import. Please close the MO app completely beforehand.

Nov 7: Our fix update was rejected by Google because additional security measures are required for Android 13. We are still working on completing the update. To speed up the update for you, we can give you the internal test version 3.72T which fixes the crash. Contact us via chat messenger or at and give us your email or Google ID. We apologize for this unfortunate incident and ask for your continued patience.

Nov 6th: we have detected a critical bug (app won't start) - we are working to release an update today. Sorry about this!

The latest update v3.71 was released on Nov 5 with the following items:

  • Compatibility with Android 13 (API Level 33)

The update v3.70 was released on April 16 with the following items:

  • Fixed; since OS 11 tighter security compliance has restricted the range of report sending options. Your previous options should now be available gain.

  • Backup scheduler; compliance with Dropbox required update. Please check the existing connection by manually triggering a data backup.

In the pipeline for a future update:
