Does every thing the said it would do !
Downloaded this while in Ireland...should have done it before we left the states.
Used it to coordinate a couple of meetings that I had to attend (conferencing via cell phone is great) and also when to call family back in the states. Six hour difference means you can really mess with someone's sleep if you call at the wrong time.
Good app - easy to set up - easier to use - a good tool.......do it now don't wait like I did.
the best so far for professionals
I checked out a few of apps that are similar to this and this is, by far, the best. It's the only app of its kind where the developer realizes users are likely to be professionals who demand quality and attention to detail, rather than something shoddily put together like the others. Of course, this means I need to upgrade...
Great app, just what I wanted (for once). Clear, simple, easy, and only one small ad.
I have had this over 6 months now. Still finding great new features! This is really a great app.
