Works fine for me
I am new to canning and this app is great to learn some trick of the trade. Only thing I wish it had was pictures of the finish products so I can see if mine is the same.
I see it says not to download until their server issues are resolved but that was a month ago. Any chance it has been resolved?
Does not work in the slightest
App crashes every time I try to register. I can not view any information unless I register.
