Other Comments: 

I was extremely thrilled when I downloaded this app and tested it as I wasn't expecting much to be honest. I have written to 3AW to give them my positive feedback however, I did mention the issue with the one unlabeled button and gave them my email address should they want to contact me with advice on how to fix this in future releases.
