    "This definitely seems like an interesting and user-friendly concept, especially for those in school or with those who have a job that deals a bit with numbers. The interface does seem like it runs quite smooth, but I would only imagine it's most useful on a device with a larger screen, such as an Ipad. Overall, I think this is a good calculator for anyone."

    "A simple game, with a simple rule; keep your pen/stylus from crashing. The background moves for you, so you only need to move laterally. The game is somewhat fun, but quickly boring."

    "This is a fairly general search. But this does fit my search and it is a very useful popular app. It's more a utility than an actual app though."

    "A good podcast aggregator is hard to find, and this one is excellent. Lots of good features to avoid frustration and wasted time (cutting dead space, auto playlists, etc)."

    "It is so easy and economizing to be able to personalize my apps and sort out my phone. The grand kids get a hold of my phone and suddenly I have extra apps and I have no idea they are there. To be able to have the new apps show up in a location that I can then review and supervise is of great assistance to me. Really enjoy using Nova Launcher for Prime."

    "My husband is a techie and loves everything android. I put Pandroid on his phone so he could be updated on any news related to android. This app has a lot of bugs. It crashes a lot. It also has a ton of annoying ads. I understand we need to have ads to pay for the development of these apps, but this was ridiculous. There is no option for a paid upgrade to remove the ads so my husband got frustrated and uninstalled it. They need to figure out the bugs and ads issues before I can give a good review"

    "Snapseed is really one of the best photo editing apps out there. There are so many filters, tools and enhancements that it never gets boring. I love to be creative with my photos for my social media sites, and with this app I can always achieve the look I'm going for or even better. I think sometimes after using this app my pictures look like they were professionally edited."

    "Google Drive is the primary app for quick and instant access to all of my important material. As a college student, I am networking all the time, but my schedule does not always allow me to meet others in person when we need to collaborate and share ideas. Sometimes, I am also restricted by what device I have at hand; however, I always have my phone on me. With the Google Drive app, I am able to work on projects on any of my devices (both individually and withing groups), safely store my private photos and videos, and most importantly I have guaranteed back-up files of all my content even if my hard-drive or phone are lost or broken. Google Drive keeps me organized and eases my mind."
