No menu The menu button doesn't work. This fixes half my problems. Fixing half of something doesn't do any good. If I fix half my flat tires I still can't drive. So ultimately this app does nothing.

Can't remember what I thought about it, and with 'trial period ended' when I reinstall I can't find out either. Oh well, I was willing to give it another shot, your loss.
