Ratings and Reviews
This app doesn't work at all. I get the same issues as the other person who reviewed it. I cannot connect to any server without the app freezing. Please don't get it's a waste of money.
If you "close" the app it will only stay connected for some minutes, so you can't multitask. Please fix that and I will give it a better rating
I thought the original version was kind of an uninspiring port, but the dev(s) released a really nice update with new features and whatnot, so I felt compelled to toss in a review.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
