Not much to see here folks

I am being a bit generous giving 3 stars here, because there is very little information given in the free portion of this app. The Instructions are quite basic, and cover those features that could be easily understood by anyone who cares to look at the Help file, or spend 10 minutes playing around with the programs. I might be tempted to pay for the additional information, but the description says that half of the information is available in the free app. No way I would pay for another bit the same size as what is delivered here. Understand - what is here is not badly done, there is just not much of it.


This is a great idea.
