Ratings and Reviews
This app has great potential. It freezes often and takes a long time to load, thus using a lot of battery which isn't helpful with most cases when needing to use this app. This is a great start and very necessary for Harris County!
Notifications Feature Doesn't Work
This app has potential. The notification feature does not work, which IMO was one of the most important features.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
