Feature light, but works.

Does exactly what I want it to. No more. No less. Never had an issue with the app on any of 2 phones, and 3 operating systems.

Almost perfect. I just wish I could see a brief description within the app itself, and not need to open the web browser. Very minor issue, so 5 stars for sure.
