  1. Thank god I was able to get this from your site and try it out before I plunked 100 bux for it. It’s terribly written, and hard to follow. It was not written by Wenderlich himself, but an associate. And the author go’s full speed in a style I just don’t like. (but that’s me).

    LOVE SITES like this that let me try shit out like this before I spend really good money on shit like this that don’t offer money back due to dissatisfaction.
