  • Waste of money

    After i purchased the pro version the app started working very poorly. Almost unusable. Very disappointed

  • Broken

    Bought the app and now no access - and it keeps saying me email is wrong when I try to reset my password - so frustrating.
  • Horrible Customer Service - UPDATE

    By drpoopish
    App isn’t working with the new iOS 13 update and customer service hasn’t answered my emails. I paid a buttload for the premiere version, the least you could do is reply to your users. UPDATE - Kudos to the MoA tech team for rushing out an update and for reaching out personally several times once they realized their app wasn’t working.
  • Broken since the iOS13 update

    By kiroboto
    Useful app (when it worked). I preferred the old version, with the videos more easily accessible, but this version maintains all the info from the original. It is just a little more clunky. Unfortunately, it stopped working after the iOS 13 update, and now just hangs at a blank white screen.
  • not compatible with new ipad upgrade

  • V2 Not Working

    By Alowishious Bridges
    This app was amazing, but the new update is not. After it loads, I get a white screen and nothing more. I have emailed support about this (over a week prior to writing this review) and have heard nothing back. Please fix the app.
  • Please Fix - Broke with last update!
