Beware of accidentally creating multiple Yahoo IDs. I ended up creating 4 IDs over the time and now I can't login into 3 of them. Moreover my PayPay credit card is linked to the one of those 3 IDs.

I can't live without it! Great app! Hey you! Because you can't read Japanese and can only add one star to this app, it's your problem, not this app. Ridiculous!
