    "My son has been using this for his collection and it works really well. The whole thing can be customization - which makes it really flexible. Some countries don't have great databases (just a heads up), but that's because of the country - not the app. The app works perfectly. "

    "This app is worth my dollars because it serves what it has to be doing. For a hobbyist like me, this is what I'm looking for. Just a little tip, maybe you can change or improve your interface to make it more attractive to use :D but nevertheless, I like how it performs. "

    "I'm not a stamp collector but I had a lot of old stamps that I was curious about so I gave this app a shot and it did identify all of them. My biggest complaint was the price, I only bought this app because Googling them was getting to be a waste of time but I really think this app would have been more fair in the 5 dollar range rather than the 10 I paid. I guess it's worth it if you are big into stamp collecting though."

    "I had really high hopes for using this app for stamp identification, but I was disappointed. It seems to be very buggy. Also, it basically just wants you to spend money to purchase catalogues. Don't bother with this."
