Totally Useless

Update: I got a personal insult response (below) from the developer. It shows his integrity and level of professionalism. Also the overall high rating of this app with no positive written reviews indicates the positive ratings are most likely bogus.

"You must have failed the Wise Guy access control, which requires a minimum of good childhood education. We would recommend the Wikipedia article on the "Online Disinhibition Effect". But most likely that won't mean anything to you. "

As of this review this app hasn’t been updated in over a year, but I thought I would try it anyway. I downloaded to my iPad which this app does not support.

Opening the app brings up a convoluted screen that leaves you guessing at what you need to do, take a picture and then the app just does nothing. I tried manually typing into the search engine and it gives you several categories to search from, but the return searches were so general and useless that I have no idea why what is the app is good for.

The developer needs to either update this app or take this piece of garbage off of the app store.

You must have failed the Wise Guy access control, which requires a minimum of good childhood education. We would recommend the Wikipedia article on the "Online Disinhibition Effect". But most likely that won't mean anything to you.
