    Please fix this App. It's an embarrassment to Hong Kong given this App is supposed to represent the best and most interesting of Hong Kong! The current App crashes, stalls or is extremely slow when it works on an Android platform. I've deleted it within 20 mins of downloading it. Very disappointed!
