    This app requires a purchase to be of any value. Calling it free is purely and simply false advertising and an outright lie. It may well be a good app once purchased, but a company that lies to me as a marketing strategy will have a hard time earning any trust.

    Paid $20 for it, then it updates and asks me to pay more! As others note, it crashes often. I expect quite a bit more for my cash. I ended up uninstalling it.

    It's great that I could download it for free.. But what I didn't know is I would have to pay if I wanted to do anything with the app. Very disappointed.
