Great App

This is a great tool for mobile splice instructions. Just wish I didn't need a connection to view them.

The #1 reason to download this app is because you want offline versions of their splicing PDFs. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have any. You need an internet connection to view any splicing instructions — and yes, they’re just the PDFs that are on their webpage.

Why does this app exist? It’s worse than just using the website. At least there, I have the option to download splicing PDFs for offline viewing.
