Doesn't open anymore. App hasn't been updated in years. Doesn't work on newer phones (note 4).

Used to be a great app This app auto crashes as soon as you open it. Someone needs to rescue this app or Google just needs to get rid of it because it doesn't work anymore.

crashes on opening This app used to be good but then they updated it a while back and now it crashes upon opening. I've submitted countless bug reports with logs and they still haven't fixed it. (Galaxy S5.)

Used to be Great. Crashes now This app is suffering from neglect, (Last update was 2012) and back in 2012 it was pretty great at telling you when dining halls were open and that's what I mainly used it for. Now it auto crashes as soon as I open it, and even if it didn't it probably wouldn't have new places like Burger 37 that have opened since then. Hope it rebounds or someone else comes along with something better.
