There may be a bug or glitch. It will work fine for weeks and then all of a sudden it just tanks.""It could be improved in the area of reporting and ease-of-use.""I have experienced some errors, such as failures, but there have not been very many.""The pricing is an area of improvement and the mode of marketing it."
