I would love to use the app, but I cannot understand how I'm supposed to log into it? I have enabled all the settings, all that. I am interested in trying the free version 1st. So, the Pro versions give you a log in key code to use for login. The free version does not give you a log in key, but the only information I can find regarding how to log into the iOS app states that all iOS versions need a log in key. I'm pretty internet and iOS savvy, but this app/website is a mess, and just sends you an endless loop between Safari Settings, the website and then the App story. If simply logging in is this chaotic, I'm going to pass for the time being. One a more positive note, there seems to be a really extensive list of features, although some are already available in the iOS accessibility menu. There are 'guides' and 'help' available, but they are just not very well written, honestly. I did see that there are videos, also. So, it really has some great potential for those who chose to installt the extension on a different system like Chrome or Firefox.
