AWESOME!!!

It is unlikely I'll use this much on iMessage only because I rarely have those kinds of discussions on iMessage. But if/when I do, this is AWESOME! Friends don't let friends argue illogically! 😁

Now... if this is ever made available for direct use on Show of Hands app, Safari & general internet discussion sites - where I'd use it DAILY - I'll be a very happy camper! Came to App Store *specifically* to find an app that would make it easier to copy/paste logical-argument-fallacy-flags into the overwhelming number of twisted irrational arguments rampant on the web!

In the meantime, I'm going to copy/paste these little jewels into web chats! THANKS!!!

Appeal to emotion

I'm not sure rating this 3 stars because you don't want to hurt your friends feelings is valid. The app works, it's funny, and the labels are accurate when applied correctly. Only thing that's missing I think is Appeal to Emotion.

Just one little problem...

Yes, they're educational. Yes, they're funny. But I'd be reluctant to use these with any of my friends & families, for fear of causing offense. Any discussions I have in which these may be relevant wouldn't be conducted via iMessage.

Great for a laugh, though.
