That is the only advantage of Ios, that is, the app that is 70% similar to
Loadstone! In my opinion, that's why so few donations are out there... I
think that us Android users would want a similar app more than those who
already have a solution. Now if someone asks me why then I don't buy an
Ihpone, I would go back to the reasons discussed in another, dropped topick.
I don't like being right when saying things like this, but my previsions
about the lack of response is starting to be seen even before the porting
has started... Unfortunately...
