While I love using this app for work: assisting bosses and higher-ups in getting to know our coworkers, it's got so many bugs. It was able to finally get to 100 people and went to sync it when the app continued to crash on me. After trying for two days to sync my contacts with people I shared it with, I wasn't able to sync it once and forced to delete it and log back in. After logging back in, IT DELETED THE ENTIRE GROUP I SPENT WEEKS CREATING. I've reached out to their tech through email and twitter but have gotten no response. If I have to pay another $4 to share a new group AGAIN for it to crash AGAIN, then this is just a waste of time to anyone trying to use it.

Pretty good app

Pretty good app. Easy to use. Well laid out. I just wish the default for taking pictures was to have the flash disabled.

Nothing says embarrassing like being in a meeting and making it *really* obvious you’re taking pictures of your colleagues by having the flash go off.

App allows you to manually disable flash, but a saner default would be to manually *enable* flash if the picture is too dark.

Yay! I know their names!

I'm a visual learner. I oversee hundreds of children and could never remember everyone's name until now. This app is perfect and it's working. I've memorized 80 names this week and it wasn't hard.
