    "This app provides most of the features that are needed, but there is a lot that could be added to improve the user experience. It is also very buggy and does not work well with all devices. There is a lot of room for improvement."

    "This app would be pretty great if it would work consistently. I have a lot of connection issues with this thing, but when it does work, it's super handy. You can try it - it might work better on some phones than others. Try it and see - what have you got to lose other than your patience?"
