So why are they retarded? Because they made a good solid app? It amuses me every time I see retarded people making retarded comments judging other people as retarded to cover up for their own insecurities and incapabilities :-) On top of all that being a racist does not cover up the fact that these oh so smart people did not make any apps whatsoever themselves... ever! Hilarious!!!
