    "I needed something to make my hectic job in social work more digestible. This app works wonders for organizing my busy professional life and helping me provide care for my clients. I am hoping there isn't much data mining going on though, since putting names and details into this app and beaming them to the cloud could be an ethical violation. I should look into that."

    "Useful little app and well worth the price for me. It allowed me to remain focused on one task when I would start feeling like I was getting confused or overwhelmed. The ability to pull on my phone and just do some easy organization at any time gave me peace of mind. "

    "This is a good app to recommend to my clients, but it's not so useful to me, at least not yet. I'd really like to see more resources like this collected in an app, that I could pass along to clients."

    "As a social worker, I have a case load of a lot of people, mostly children, who have difficulties in society for one reason or another. They often don't have the life skills that is so necessary to thrive in our world. This app really helps these people out and develops skills to help them in daily life."
