Review by Fr. Gabriel, OP

It's fine for Merlin - This app is great. It does exactly what it advertises and it execute flawlessly. It is similar to the 5by5 Network itself – the best. The fact that it doesn't seem to have any bugs in a 1.0 version is a testament to the developers and to the quality control of Dan Benjamin.

Review by caudillmiller

Alerts Don’t Match the Actual Schedule - if I want to listen to the live feed, I have to leave the stream on all the time because the notifications aren’t in sync with the actual live feed. I kept missing the live shows I’m interested in because the alerts would go off a few hours too late. I changed the time zone settings on my computer (thinking that would fix it), but still get the late notifications (or no notifications at all). It’s an awesome app, but I wish the alerts were in sync with the actual schedule. I’m using tweetbot notifications for @5by5 right now until the current notifications get fixed. I definitely recommend getting this app, though.
