Great App but Add an Age Limit for Voting

great app in all, BUT there is one issue which is the voting which works perfectly well with 5 free votes but does not work when everybody has this privilege. There should be an age limit for voting AT LEAST (e.g. age 16/17 or over the same age contestants have to be to enter the show) or something where you have to enter a credit card number but still get the 5 free votes when this happens - at least it stops pre teenagers from making decisions which can affect someones life based on how good looking an person is without even watching the show.
Also this app shouldn't be available in countries where x factor uk isn't aired as people can still vote in these countries which does not make the vote accurate and changes it to a popularity contest.
Either that or bring back payment for voting on this app because at least people actually thought properly before voting.
in a final note why is the voting open BEFORE the acts have performed - how is that fair? how?, how?
apart from that great app🙂

Not working

I'm sure this app would be absolutely brilliant if it didn't keep crashing. I can't load it at all and I've deleted the app several times and redowloaded it but nothing seems to be working. It's annoying because I want to vote for my favourite!!

Great !

Its a great interaction to the TV show and you can play along at home !
