      "I am amazed by the ingenuity of this app, it seems like it would be perfect for someone living in a city, taking away the headache of trying to find the best route and mode of transportation to a destination. I love that if it doesn't seem feasible to use public transportation, Uber is integrated into the app. However, it holds no value for me as someone outside the city. Even when I visit I have personal transportation, so I would never use this."

Often tries to take me miles out of my direct route to save a minute or two. Day after day, I ignore such guidance and drive a more direct route, but Google maps never adapts. Even my 5-year-old Toyota's in-dash GPS lets me pick from fast, short, and eco-friendly options. Why can't this app offer more customization? Also, sometimes there's no start button after I've set up a route. Finally, route doesn't resume when continuing trip after turning off phone."

      "AppLock is a free app from DoMobile Lab that is available from the Google Play Store. The app is free but it does contain in app purchases. It allows you to password protect several social media apps and email apps and many more. It is a hugely popular app with over 300 million users world wide. If you need an added layer of privacy on your phone then this is a very very good place to start looking. I would say this is a perfect fit for the topic."
