The Best

I loved this app before I could even get it. I had seen it for free on appsgonefree, and wanted it. Unfortunately it was only available on Canada's app store (some kind of annoying mixup somewhere). I was pleasantly surprised when I did my weekly search and found it available. I'm not a knot junky. I just appreciate quality informative apps, and this one takes the cake. Worth every penny and more.
