Great content. Wish for more features.

I love the quotes in this app. They are very inspiring and serve as a great daily devotional. However, I would like to have the ability to favorite quotes within the app and then revisit them. It is cool that the app connects to Facebook, but I don’t always want to share there. I would love to see more functionality inside the app. Also, I would like to see more quotes—I have been getting duplicate quotes lately. Maybe a function that would rotate through the founders could be implemented.

Developer Response ,

Hello, you will be pleased to see that version 7.0 addresses the points you bring up. You can now easily save bookmarks and there is a new option to get quotes from any of the founders instead of just one.

List the names please

Love the app! Love the cartoon pictures of the founding fathers. However, there are a few pictures I don’t recognize. I really wish you included the name where you give credit for the quote. Thanks!

Great words of wisdom

I enjoy the daily quotes but wish there was a way to go back and read or save the previous days quote if I missed it. The notifications are great but don’t always have the full quote if it’s a long one and if I view yesterdays quote I can’t see todays too.
Also noticing a lot of repeats lately. I’ll look at a “new” daily quote and notice it’s already in my saved quotes.
