Another app review! I apologize if you’re reading this blog for the parts where I talk about reading. Perhaps I should rename my blog “Cursorily Glancing at Books but Majorly Focusing on Apps!” Not quite as catchy.

Parts of it seem to crackle along at an exciting pace while other portions seem downright dull. During the duller moments, it might not be a bad idea to crack this app open (if you can “crack open” an app).
