    This app sucks. It has a lot of potential, but it's riddled with bugs at the moment. Hopefully they're responsive in updating this thing, because I would love to have this app if it were functioning.

    The main page has an ad at the bottom, but it doesn't seem too intrusive. I don't know about the rest of the app though because it force closes before I can do anything.

    Ah, if the adds aren't that intrusive it's ok. Bleh, I was about to download it, but hesitated when I read all the reviews about the force closes and stuff.

    Yeah, it's honestly worthless right now. From what I can tell, it seems like it'd be a really good app if all the bugs get worked out. Hopefully they'll fix it soon.
