Other Comments: 

This has a very interesting concept very similar to what we have seen with the BeMyEyes. This app does contain an in-app purchase for those that want to
make a contact with a arranged volunteer. Each volunteer have been screened and gone through a interview to be accepted.

Currently you are given 8 FREE Calls to a Voluteer when you sign up.

Be aware that this basically does the front load of the work to arrange a person for you to contact for help. This will connect you to that person via
FaceTime. At this time I am not aware how the privacy works if that FaceTime of an unknown person will work. So any Comments would be greatly appreciated
in what you think of the app and of the service. Plus, what privacy are we giving when we do a FaceTime with the volunteer. such as are they anonymous
for both party or are actual AppleID are exchanged to make this FaceTime connection to happen.

So would love to hear of your experience and thoughts after using this app. Plus, of any corrections that I have mentioned and things that others might
deem of interest.

Currently their Pay Structure are as:
4 Calls for $2.99
7 Calls for $4.99
16 Calls for $9.99

Subscriptions Package are coming in the future.
