Powered by Cloud Panda PH, Inc., the application now has a 4.2 rating and more than 10, 000 installs, as of writing time.

The former sexy dancer turned public official has been hit with controversies for spreading fake news, swaying public opinion, and promoting individualistic arguments instead of rational political discourse about the government. She has been an active and vocal supporter of the Duterte administration.

Reactions on the application’s review varies with some saying that this could serve as another platform for the controversial Communications Assistant Secretary to spread fake news.
