Overall, the app is pretty good, although there was a slight issue with the Twitter button, causing the app to crash when pressed, but otherwise, there was only smooth sailing. The user interface of the app is pretty good, however, I’d like to see some improvements, making it easier to navigate and more pleasing to look at. This cannot be said as a drawback, as I’m sure the developers are hard at work making the app better.
