The app hasn't been updated in almost two years now and currently has a customer rating of four out of five stars. Customers have called the app useful, easy to use, and a wonderful organizational tool. In its last update there were changes made to the user interface, new features were added, and general improvements were made. It could, however, probably do with some refreshing again at this point.
