What's New in Version 5.22.1
* Increased app stability.
* Minor bug fixes.
Could be so good.. too many ads!
This app has now become a real pain to use anymore. Pop-up ads are annoying but I had managed to somewhat get used to them until 15-second video ads now pop-up that you can't close until they're finished running. Additionally, asking simple tasks of this app cause it to freeze up and shut down degrading it from anything useful to an annoying waste of memory and space.
Constructive feedback? -Make a version of this app that works properly and has no ads at all and I will gladly purchase it instead of this crappy version.
Poorly made app, articles
Will periodically begin SEIZING and flashing uncontrollable. Good way to trigger someone with epilepsy. Also, if you have ads, please don't make them incredibly LOUD that you can't turn off (even when phones are on silent). I'm ok with ads, but those that are ear drum shattering, spam-ridden, "I think this is going to hack my phone" ads are NOT OK.
Also, please hire someone to use spell-check and grammar check the articles. I know my usage isn't perfect, but you're (I have seen articles with the incorrect there/their/they're, etc.) literally being paid to write articles.
NOISY pop-up video ads galore
I no longer use the app due to the new pop-up video ads. Even with the phone on silent, the ads for various cars blare annoying music. If you are going to use this app, be sure to have the volume turned down because silent mode will have no impact. Also prepare for a lot of pop-up ads. I wish I could give zero stars.
