Ratings and Reviews
They don’t answer emails
My DX SPOT crashes when I try to import my logbook. I have sent 3 emails to company over a month, but no answers. I have lived this app in the past, but it’s useless to me now.
March 24, 2018: Still no reply from author. Is he alive?
Still no response ... August 2018
Different user same outcome... no response from the developer.
With relatively few reviews, I took a $4 gamble but it paid off. This app worked FB from install, just added my callsign and selected several local telnet clusters I typically use. It connects right up and dx info pours in! I would like to see the app provide beam headings to dx spots once I've entered my lat/long and perhaps alert me on needed spots as well when they show. Fear not, this app works and is a useful tool for the dx'er.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
