Amazingly good, with some glaring needs
This app does the form/data entry thing really well. It's super easy to use predone templates or make your own. You can very quickly be using this app to build a nice database. But then you want to do stuff with your data, and then there are glaring omissions. To do anything useful you have to export your data and filter elsewhere.
Still a good app, but it has the potential to be amazing.
It is highly versatile and can basically organize anything. The kicker is its clean design, from the smooth flipping of the app's layers to the simple color scheme and easy to read font. Seems a little daunting at first until you realize that it'a really easy to use. There are tons of templates and you can even design your own.
Good, but only 1 font that's faded
This is a pretty good program with one major flaw: it only has one font and that font is very light-colored and pale to read.
Also when you tap on the Help in Settings it says "page not found".
In summary, the program seems to have good potential with some advanced features, but until the above two issues are resolved by the developer it gets only 2 stars out of the 5. If those issues are cared for then I move my rating up to a 4.
