    "5 years ago I was using Android phone and Polaris was my doc processor back then. When I shifted to ios phone the same year it was a loss that Polaris wasn't available back then. So a few years after when I found Polaris on ios I immediately downloaded this from iTunes!! And I have loved using Polaris since then because of the syncing options it allowed me to choose from. "
