I try it and it's worth 5 stars
Haven't tried using the app with my students yet, but it seems pretty basic. One really annoying this is that it doesn't support landscape mode (yet) so you have a really tiny portrait mode keypad to peck away on. I'll wait patiently for the updates
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
