Customer Reviews

Very bad working app

Thumbnails are not loading correctly, the app is very slow! Even the support page is not working...
I want my money back!

So annoyed!

The app won't update or let me delete it. Can't even open it. It's just stuck on my screen. I was hoping to use this for my classes, but it's useless just sitting there on my screen. I've tried everything except wiping out my phone - which I'm not doing.


I want my money back.
