First App Review: Super Duper Data Tracker for Android

Main Product Image
For my first app review, I'm discussing the "Super Duper Data Tracker" for Android.  You may be wondering why I chose the Android version; the answer is simple.  If you have that app on your iPad, but want to use your iPad for another app, you can't use the data tracker.  I bought the app for my personal tablet so that I could use it along with my iPad if needed.  I've mentioned before that the iPad I have belongs to the school system, and I really don't want to put apps that I've personally paid for on there.
In the Android app, I had to put in the individual groups, then put in each student along with their objectives.  It was very simple to put in the information, and it didn't take that much time.
(The pictures are taken from the Super Duper, Inc. website.  For the links, click on the pictures.)
All you have to do is touch on the group and the individual students that you entered show up on the screen:
For the Android app, just touch the green for the correct production or red for incorrect.  When the session is over, you have the option to see the results for the group, or reset the data.  If you accidentally touch "Reset Data", you will get a pop-up box that asks if you're sure that's what you want to do.
It's as easy as that!

What I like:
This may sound a little strange, but I like that I can pay better attention to the students as they're producing their targets.  I don't have to have a pencil in my hand while I work with the students.
I also like that, at the end of the session, the percentage is already calculated for me.  I don't have to pull out my little grade cheat sheet that calculates the percentage based on how many incorrect productions the student had out of total productions.  I still write down the percentage on the data label, along with how many productions were incorrect/total productions.

What I would like to see:
It would be really nice if I was able to get each individual student's results instead of the entire group.  It would also be nice if the individual results from several sessions could be saved, like the Therapy Report Center by Smarty Ears:
(The picture doesn't depict an artic child, but you get the idea!)
In addition, it would be really nice if the Android version would "catch up" with the iPad version.  The following features are available for iPad, but not android:
1.  Varying responses:  correct, approximate, with cue, incorrect
2.  The ability to go back and change an answer (because sometimes I accidentally touch the wrong color, and sometimes I touch the wrong student's response.)
3.  Save the data for several sessions
4.  Graphing the results

I do think this app was worth the $1.99, even for the limited features. The price is the same for both versions ($1.99), so hopefully the updates will be coming soon.  Another plus for the Android version (while I also have my iPad on the table):  the kids think it's really cool that I have 2 tablets!
If you're using the Android version of this app, how do you like it?
