Dear John,

Thanks a lot for your work.

- found that licensecheck says that some files are in public domain

whereas d/copyright says that files are released under gpl-3:

Files: *

Also found the short description was equal to the long description in
d/control which can be reworded better to be more descriptive I guess
based on functionality of the app

Stopped the review here.

Installed the app as a part of app showdown and found it just pops up
a window with status as ready and a link to a video on vimeo and I
couldnt get to know how the app functions. Would like a simple
help/demo integrated into the app to have an overview of the app
functionality I think personally.

Abstaining for now. +0 here.
