  1. Tried it on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)phone, widget would not come up will check on my 2.2(Froyo)phone. Most likely will work since Gingerbread is more in development stages, but as long as the actual app works I am good 🙂

  2. Tried on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) – no widget. Nice app though! I especially like the plans.

  3. ever since I upgraded to version 2.7 the app crashes when I try to load the offile version. Please try and fix this issue as its messing an otherwise good app.
