    Downloaded the app today, and it works great. The Day, Night and Drive modes are really useful,. The only complaint I would make is that it doesn't work very well using Internet Passthrough. The only way I could get this to work was to start the app with Wi-Fi or Mobile network running and then connect to IP mode once the app was running - it took some time to re-connect though.

    Don't get this app, it opens every other app on the phone constantly so you can't use it. Had to restart phone just to uninstall!

    I have no idea if the program is any good as I cannot access ant functions due to a "don't do drugs and drive"banner that can't be dismissed. Zero stars.
