"We believe that it needs more development..."

Reviewer: -Dr. Nemo

Review Date: 2008-11-12

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Its work is honourable in some items, without ( OK! ) big pretenses, basic. Notwthstanding, we believe that it needs more development in the filters and synchrony in previews.
