Syncs subscriptions, downloads, and settings seamlessly across your Mac (needs Yosemite) and all your iDevices (need iOS 8). Using CloudKit (an internal iCloud Drive) everything happens in the background.

Search and subscribe automatically or manually (by URL).
Versions for Android and Windows from their respective App Stores (but these not tested).
All reviews for iphoneipodapps.net are based on real-life usage over several weeks or months. We only review apps that we can genuinely use in a real-world environment.
Some review sites just cut-and-paste from a developer's press kit. We don't do that!. (Note: we sometimes use supplied screen shots to avoid displaying personal information - but the words are our own...)
