Simple and easy to use app. Love the options for research and the customization right down to number if involved cores. Only issue is that any of the webpages associated with the app say they don't exist, including the FAQ, except the home page. Side note: this app will easily sideload on a fire stick and can technically run but it only turns the timer without actually processing anything. Would've been nice to run it on the fire stick that sits plugged in for hours doing nothing.

Great app, I just wish it weren't so cautious about using my phone. It seems to be very scared of using any compute resources which is what I want to give to the researchers, if there were overrides that I could click "agree to terms I understand I am allowing x" such as not requiring it to be charging that would help. Highly recommend.

Cannot sign up. When the screen launched, and you chose the sign up screen, it locks up, and the keyboard and screen become non responsive. I had to shut down my phone and reboot it to first the app out. Tried it three times. Happen every time.
