    Wow. Ironic, you interviewing him in such a noisy situation. Between that, and his accent, anyone with a hearing problem would be out of luck.

    I found the Jacoti web site very opaque as to what this App actually does and what is the problem to be solved. It was mostly oriented to people who might pay them license fees.

    I thought I would just download the App and give it a try. On startup you are asked your email, and then the license agreement and then a whole page of creating an account and personal info.

    I’m very put off by that. There is no reason an app like this even needs to have an account, certainly for the basic functionality. I deleted the app.

    Too many Apps and sites do this recently. First, sign up, give us all your info, swear to the license, and then, maybe, we’ll explain what this is even good for.
