Personal Comments by Reviewer

Like so many other people I find my wallet is constantly full of cards that make it cumbersome to carry around. I liked the usefulness this app offered and the fact that this information was never stored or sent to a server or any other outside source. The fact that I could protect my information with a password lock gave me that extra peace of mind.
