    If that ain’t a violation of the WordPress logo, I don’t know what is! Congrats on this app, it looks awesome.

    Hi, Just tried checking this out as AppPresser with BP plugin may be just what i’m looking for, however when i install the above app on my NoteII I get the following error message “Could not connect to server” – is this example app no longer supported and if so where could I try before I buy? Thanks in advance.

    Tried to demo app and they don’t allow new registrations. Not much to see if you can’t get in.

      Hi Jamie, sorry about that. I was noticing a lot of spam registrations, they must have turned registration off for that reason. They are ways to combat spam for your own app.

        I’d also like to check out the app – is there a way? Demo credentials?

    If we can’t sign up, what are the demo credentials?

      Hi, we aren’t the owners of this app, so we don’t have demo credentials to give out unfortunately. Sorry!
