It’s pretty great


I really enjoy this app quite a bit. The notifications nearly always pull me in and it helps me learn as much as possible. The one problem I’m seeing is whenever I try to go to see the ones that I’ve given the little heart in the corner to, I’m kicked out of the app completely and have to go back in.
Overall it’s really great though, I’d recommend it to anyone I don’t hate.

Could use some work


I love the app, don’t get me wrong - always have something phenomenal as the notifications. I’m always checking it, truly amazing. The only issue I’m having with as a subscriber is checking my favorites. The app closes when I do so. If that was fixed it would definitely be a 4-5* in my eyes!

Would be 5 stars IF:


There were continual updates on the app. Crashes occur and some bugs need to be terminated.
