Ratings and Reviews
Detailed articles but...
Sure would be nice if there was a one-time purchase option, especially since it looks like it just removes ads. Don't mind at all paying more up front for that option.
Outdated interface and always issues with subscription
The app looks quite dated and doesn’t properly support latest phones. Always forgets about subscription and now it doesn’t recognize the subscription at all so it shows adds all the time. Time to cancel subscription and delete the app.
Time for an upgrade
Over 2 years since last upgrade. Ugly on newer iPhones. UI could use a serious update.
