Really amazing app. It has even many other accessibilities that they even have not mentioned: ->Copy the URL and go to the app. The URL automatically gets pasted. I wondered what would be source code of Google, rather how loong it would be. Other apps lag and crash with these type of source codes. But this app doesn't lag at all. Source code is on the screen right away. Secondly, no ads! It's just like heaven, bro. Good Job. Keep it up.

It does everything it says and does it well. I have used it for a while now and still happy. Yes, there are things that would be great to have but these are feature requests and not issues with app. All in all a good solid tool. Update Aug 2022. It's 2 years since my last comment and this app has become a absolute must have on all my Android devices. It's a learning/teaching tool as well as a forensic tool.
