Didn't work on tablet, good on Smartphone Have LG G-Tab 7.0 and Samsung S5 both running Android 4.4.2 and app simply doesn't work on the LG. Causes device to essentially freeze while the screen flips back and forth between vertical and horizontal. Seems to work fine on Samsung.

Why no support for rooted devices? I'm a developer and need my devices to be rooted. Android is an open source operating system, unlike iOS. There's no reason to restrict legitimate rooted devices that are not hacked and are merely doing what they were designed to do. The content provider excuse doesn't make sense considering you allow the functionality on a PC in a browser. Rooted Android devices are not hacked!!

Not good! I want to like this app but since I am rooted, I will never know if it is good or not so can't rate it more than 1. I root MY phone which is MY choice to have access to newer and better versions (aftermarket) versions of Android. Perfectly legal! Why does Telus then treat all of us "rooters" as criminals???
