Thanks Andy for the review.

all your observations will be taken into account, we were wrestling sooo long with the core rendering issues that I wasted a lot of time testing instead of working on refinements, for which the list is very long.

I will look at your screen recordings in depth…

And we can all look forward to my wailing and knashing of teeth with questions on how to improve performance on Android.

I already have feedback from a young scientist in Kerala… Samsung Galaxy A7 with a list of place where the app hangs and stops.

I was working on using TS Net to provide better control over the flow of data when the use is accessing content on the net. But what was simple at first became challenging and I had to bail and just get this out the door and printed promotions were already telling the world the Android version was ready (marketing  ahead of engineering!)

Some of the strange rendering issues on Android persist (e.g. the download screen for the audio) 

Happy New Year to all.

    Congratulations a very nice app.
    I've done a quick review that you might be useful.
    *Phone *
    Nokia 6 
    Android version 7.1.2
    Internal Memory 32GB Free 22.6GB
    SD Card 64GB
    Data connection via WIFI
    Instead of doing a full step by step usage review I thought having a screen
    recording of Installation and Usage might be more useful for you as you can
    see the speed of operation in real time followed by a short observational.
    *Screen recording here*
    Installation was smooth with no problems.
    Liked the general layout and the use of background images.
    Navigation was logical although I did find myself having to remember where I
    was in the app as it is so expansive.
    Liked the rounded text content boxes and scrolling of the text was good and
    responsive. Noticed that the AppNews differed in this layout scheme?
    The search function worked though I wasnt sure what to search for.. thats
    just my ignorance of the subject.
    *Problems encountered*
    In the Songs section about 6:00 in the video the app seemed to hang and I
    received a Not Responding message, chose to respond with Wait and all then
    continued to work OK.
    I had problems dismissing the Share bar at about 10:40 in the video.
    Some of the text was a little slow to load but not overly so.
    Hope you find this useful, again a very nice app, well done to all involved.
