I realized with more and more iPhone and LTE enabled watch owners, many standalone version users never had access to the help tools I created. Hopefully this will bring in more positive ratings. In the last month I’ve been getting 2-3 sometimes 4 one-star ratings every day. We need at least 8-15 five-stars to balance out otherwise the app will quickly dip below 4 star average and disappear from view. I contacted Google to look into the cause of such high number of negative ratings, but they move slowly if at all. Until then I hope to get enough good ratings to keep the app afloat.
