Some of these reviews have asked (and and NOT received developer response) to this question. “Why must we make an account”?
Nothing is free, friends. Just like flashlight apps, those that merely facilitate using the hardware on our devices (flash, camera,etc) have an agenda and have often been cited by tech reviews as being some of the most intrusive apps that also sell and trade the private information and identities of their clientele.
In this day and age of identity theft, spam callers, phishing and all of the other devious and harmful practices that people fall
victim to, this is a huge red flag.
-You CANNOT try it out before disclosing your personal information;
-You are NOT paying for, nor are you receiving, any amenities or capabilities that your phone does not already have, NOR are you paying for services such as cloud storage, etc. (only allowing the developer the chance for the developer’s profits to INCREASE, while the safety of your identity and privacy DECREASES).
...yet “good reviews” (are they real?) excitedly proclaim this app to be “free” (ever deal with identity theft? Damage to credit scores? Having to repair credit reports? All those calls, documentation, meetings and other really annoying and time consuming things that are all part of being victim to and a part of the ever-increasing numbers of people who fall victim to those predatory scoundrels?).
Nope. I’d rather PAY UP FRONT. IF I want it. There are other FREE AND PRIVATE ways to utilize this function.
