    The best designed app on Windows Phone so far, just ahead of Poki (pocket client). All the animations are perfect, the live tile is both stylish and informative at the same time, reading configurations are spot on. I could go on and on. To be concise: The app is PERFECT 👌

    Everybody had said it. Remarkable. Love the translucency. This is what most apps should aspire to be. To the developers, thank you. 😍 I'd marry you guys in a heartbeat 💓.
