    "This has a few technical problems that I hope they'll solve soon. It can be slow and non-responsive. This does not stop me from using it, though. I spend as much time on the app when I'm out and about as I do on the website when I'm at home. This is some times wasted time, but I can't bring myself to regret it."

    "I gave this a trial run and found that it works well and has a lot of info. It does cost money to download and use. I can't say that it's really worth paying for because there is a lot of free info on the Civil War on YouTube and other places. "
