As of version 1.9, the decimal point bug has been fixed.

For the most part, the app is very easy to use.  This is also true for the initial setup, which is just a case of supplying the details it asks for. You will need a PINsentry device, however they supply a talking version.  Once you have completed the registration process you won't need it again, as far as using the app is concerned.
