It was ok for a while, but now Avast says its a virus. Had to remove it for now and I hope it becomes a non-virus soon. Ok. Avast no longer complains! Added one star.

Barry, we took this up with AVG (owner of Avast). Their response (Feb 18th): "Thank you for contacting AVG. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. The detection by AVG was incorrect and was removed in a recent AVG update, please wait at least 24 hours." As they mention, this was an error on their end. Thanks for bringing this up!

Please allow to disable the rating system. Thanks for the reply - 15 months late. I actually deleted the app about a year ago due to all the extremist ratings. I hope that was what you were planning for by adding such a stupid feature.

Randy, thank you again for your feedback! May we ask, are you referring to the comments? The app does allow blocking specific commenters, reporting offensive comments, and even disabling comments altogether. We hope this helps - please let us know.
