Works great for me and I really love it! Helps when I’m at home where there’s poor cell signal. I can compose posts from my phone and put them in email outbox. When I drive for errands, I wouldn’t have time to blog, but there go the posts. Thanks SO MUCH for your hard work in making this available and keeping updated.
