Why this exists?

UX - So bad that I wanted to upload a video of what I see on my laptop after installation.
Utility - I cannot comment on that because I could’nt get a chance to utilize this app. thanks to the awful UI and UX.

My greatest concern is that this application is hosted on App Store. Let me repeat this again - this app is hosted on APP STORE. I’ve been a fan of APPLE but how this application made to app store is out of my comprehension. My honest suggestion to Apple is to allow users to upload UX videos on app store to reveal the mess such applications have created. I would not recommend this application to anyone.
