No beef with the performance of the app here, but unfortunately the new interface is following the B&W and greyness loonacy. I had to turn on text with the icons because the icons themselves had turned into small meaningless blobs. Why not get rid of icons all together and be done with? Monochrome screens will be in vogue again soon anyway. Nobody needs colour.

I used it, but since they didn't update it for a long time, I swtched to until it became paid-only, then I switched to which works good enough, but for paid solution I prefer which works without client on my side, through web browser. My company bought for support, so I use it to assist them.
