A few tips for my fellow helpers- -When you are getting a call, tap the green "answer call" button rapidly, and it will pick it up quicker and easier than if you only tapped once. -If you are having trouble with clarity of text or pixilated video, use the camera feature in the lower left-hand corner to take a picture of the item, and all the text will be perfectly clear! What an amazingly helpful app!

I had no issues since this last review until now. Latest update on my Samsung now has notifications from be my eyes blocked in the app settings. It is grayed out and won't let me allow notifications. I'm so BUMMED! I LOVE the concept of this app. However, the last two times I got a call and went to answer it froze. Please fix it. I really love the app and want to be able to answer the calls. The first time worked perfectly, but not the last two.
