Ok & not ok

Sometimes it is a great app! Sometimes it is a bad app. When I do the answer it says it is incorrect when it is correct. For example, when u argue with someone it does not mean you question them, it means you disagree with them or you are mad at them & you yell at them. It is also a great app! I like the pet part too, that is very creative. Overall great app!
