The prototype app is presently available for the iOS platform only to review. The date of launch for the Android version is still unclear. However, we are expecting all test features won’t make it to the final product.

The newer version of apps sometimes comes with a cost. For instance, Snapchat has faced raps a couple of times for its random update.
