What a fun Useless Creation!

I'm very impressed with this app. They continue to update and add content to keep it current. The new 12th Doctor's Sonic is gorgeous! I’m still hoping that the 8th Doctor’s sonic from the “Night of the Doctor” prequel will find it’s way to the app sometime soon. I know it’s a minor variation of the 4th Doctor’s but I can wish.
It's one year later and they did it! They added the 8th Doctor's screwdriver. This is one cool company! They understand fun and the Whovian in all of us. Thanks!

Amazing! Just one thing

Amazing! Great app love it graphics are really nice! Totally with the two dollars! Just one thing you should be able to build you own sonic screwdriver for premium members! Sure some designs might not work but that still would be cool! Please add this to it though! And also the eleventh doctor’s sonic in one episode turned red when pushed all the way up could you please add that two?

I am a big fan of this app I love using this as a flashlight with my favorite sonic screwdriver but I can only use it in the space screen because when I try to use it for the other feature the screen is just blank white with a screwdriver also since the new season of the brand new doctor Jodie Whittaker please add the new sonic screwdriver
