Suggestions forimprovement are always welcome. Also, any help with translationswould be greatly appreciated!P.S. Some crooks are actively manipulating the ratings, and Googleprovides no means for developers like me to fight it. Sure I couldjoin the war, buy fake likes, drop fake 1-star reviews oncompetitors, waste money on ad campaigns, etc., but this is just ahobby for me and it should remain fun! So far all growth has beenorganic, and I'd really like to see it continue that way. So, ifyou have tried the app and like it, please give back a little andrate it 5 stars! I understand some of you may want to be morenuanced, and I do also appreciate 4-star ratings, but please noticethat they don't help much; the bad guys give very low ratings, andcurrently even 4 stars pull the rank down, so the only real helpcomes from 5-star ratings and sensible review comments.
