    "This would be a great solution to the problem however it is taking you to the google play and not the app store where you would nee to use it for apple. It could be replaced for an apple device. This is a good replacement for apps and has great reviews. "

    "I'm not sure if it's a replacement app and it's not built-into an iPhone or anything like it. It's an app for iPhone so for that I can't advise it."
