I just found out about this app today. Did a search here to see if someone had already recommended it. This thread is pretty old, so I'm resurrecting as a PSA.

A couple years ago I tried to send an ATON discrepancy report and between the app not being all that user friendly for that particular item and then the followup from the USG which was more painful than the app....I deleted it.

Maybe its much better now so I will take another look at it.

I have the rest of the info generally on other much more user friendly apps.
