    Version: 1.2.1
    Four star review from me. Nice addon, but loses a point because, damn, the front-end look is so ugly! A simplified field set would also be better, I think or at least the option to switch off a number of them - like the start/end dates (I'd prefer that to be switched off), the million icons to choice from (they just add clutter). I'd also like to see the ability to set via admin a specific set of answers - to restrict to Yes/No for example. I also think the phrasing could do with a little work. But, with all that said, a good addon that fits the purpose. Well done guys.
