    "I have been using the android clock app for about a year. I like the ease of use, the graphics are simple and not cluttered. I am an architect and can sometimes get so involved in my work, that I lose track of time. The clock app easily sets alarms and so I can set up multiples through out the day to keep me on schedule."

    "This is a perfect application to digitize anything you want to take a picture of. It's almost like a scanner that converts whatever you want into Word, Powerpoint, or PDF documents. The entire concept is not unheard of. I had an application that did the same as this about four years ago and it worked perfectly as well. "
