Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic app. Lots of useful and informative information. Discovered by accident and have shared with a lot of friends and family.
Edit:: upon further use. I am having trouble getting videos to load. The app seems and buggy and sluggish.
I think this is a fantastic app and can go a long ways with some minor tweaks and fixes. Needs more market expansion
Don't waste your time...
This app doesn't work on my new iPad Air2. I thought the app would be a great one for me, and was anxious to begin using it. Every time I open it, however, all I see is a blank white screen with the exception of a small square of tan & black on the bottom right. I have never had an experience like this with any other app. Clearly, it needs some work.
I really enjoy the Home & Garden and Travel sections-very interesting articles. The app is simple and easy to use too!
