This version tries again to improve up the German localization.
With that said, if you know German and can help & I’ll donate some $$$ to you.
There are about 20 or so phrases in the app so it shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes to help me out.  Email me at the contact link above and we can maybe make this work.
PS: same goes for Spanish & any languages you may like to have added too!
