Review by yikes, how long???

Where’s the English translation? - This page in the App Store says it’s in English, simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese. If there is an English component, I can’t find it. And the link from this page to the developer, so we can write and ask how to find the English, if it exists, takes you to a page in Chinese with five tabs at the top, none of which appears to be related to herbs. Seems like a scam to me.
