Ratings and Reviews

Not optimised for screen size


iPhone 6 has larger screen not to see the smaller objects zoomed but to put more/optimum contents. App works okay but terrible UI leading to bad UX. Not sure if the developer reads but I wanted to just share some facts on the app design.

Works well


Worked well in most cases

Excellent app

This is a life saver for places where English is not the main stream language ...I used this in Japan and it worked all the time without any issues ...
