I read a ton of good reviews for this app and I was really looking forward to using it but I can't even make an account. I get all the way to the screen where you fill in your name and your email address and then I press let's go and the app crashes. Dont know if this is a bug caused by a recent update or what but I'm quite disappointed. I'll be trying other apps but hopefully you guys can fix it and Id love to give your app a second chance. 🙂

My experience was not great. I downloaded it even though the reviews were bad and I just decided to give it a shot. It seemed to work at first and then after I logged everything in and put my email and password information (to make an account) it sent me back to the first screen (to make an account or login screen) and retried it (even tried to login) and it didn't work. This app would do great if it worked but I have to give it one star for not working and meeting expectations.

This was such an excellent app. I used it constantly from 2014- 2016. I got a new device with less space so this had to go. I got another, better device with more space recently and came back to re-download it. What a shame to see all the reviews for it now. I don't think I'm even going to try downloading it again. I'd rather remember it as it was. Five stars for the memories.
