No longer works Points to wrong address with no ability to change. Force closes constantly on kit Kat and Galaxy Note 3. Useless, uninstalling until the developers fix it.

Don't download Website has changed; developer has not changed his target in the app. Was one of the best apps for a good short-term model, now worthless.
