    Great app that could be SOOOO much more. Unfortunately, it has very limited customization (no access to adding Waze, podcast players, etc). Until this functionality is added, it really isn't that useful.

    Works well, but every time I restart my phone (lg g4) it loses the settings. 5 stars if it gets fixed.
