I don't usually leave reviews on apps but I felt like I had to with this one. - Amazing concept - Very informative - Probably the worst app I've ever used as far as it being glitchy, doesn't feel seemless doesn't really flow right or at least the way you would want or expect it to. I really enjoyed it for the first 2 days but it becomes pretty annoying when you really begin to use it, especially when it comes to communicating with others.

It's easy to check for your newest relatives quickly on the app. I also share my map with friends through my phone. I wish the features and articles I can't see without paying extra were not plugged, hence 4 stars instead of 5. That's frustrating since it was included for free when I first bought the test many years ago (at a much higher price than what they charge today). I fill out surveys, so they use my data, but I can't see how they use it without paying a yearly fee. Not right.

Excellent app so far. The only issue I can find with it is that, when the process of registering the kit or giving the saliva sample is interrupted by switching apps or closing the app, the app appears to go back to the beginning. Tapping the button at the bottom of the screen takes you to the proper screen, but knowing that you can just tap the "register kit" etc buttons is something some people might not know to do. So the process of using the app to register the kit becomes a bit ambiguous.
