Not entirely free, but well worth the 4.99$

There is a ton of stuff you can learn without paying a penny. And it is really helpful especially with your training. When I'm finished with the entire app that is free, I'm going to happily purchase the rest of it for less than five dollars. Wonderful app.

Mmm-Key ,

Another GOTCHA app!

Version update notes say "new content"... actually they just deleted my app and replaced it with an attempt at a window into my life that they will sell to anyone and everyone... I'm not signing up, so I just lost a nice app! Anti American, despicable, private sector big brother nonsense. I ALMOST went ahead and signed up until I read the ridiculous user agreement. Join me and RESIST this! Be on the right side of history, though a losing battle it may be. I suspect this app was sold to the new big dev and they have no morals. If it's an in app purchase app that's worth the unlock of 5$! why do you ALSO want to sell my info that is FREE to you !? Ingrates don't get my money or info.
