Love this app!

Just got it on my second iPad for my personal clusters, figured now was a good time to leave a review.

I’m super excited to start paying for this one day if that’s the route you want to go. I would love to help fund some custom CRD development around most of the common stuff like cert-manager and the EKS AWS VPC CNI.

Thanks for your work!
