There seems to be a display problem in User Notes on the iPad.
With the iPad held in anything but right-side-up portrait orientation (that is, with the home button at the bottom), the display of User Notes (once the keyboard slides into view) is "mangled." I'll attach a screenshot to show what I mean. The text of the note is legible if the note is reopened with the iPad in right-side-up portrait orientation, so no data is being lost.
If I dismiss the keyboard, more of the note becomes visible, but if I tap in the note to bring the keyboard back, everything disappears except the verse reference.
I'm using an iPad with Retina Display, running iOS 8.1.3.
