Very nice–except as of the previous update, the app no longer works on my LG G3 which runs Android 5. Android 7 is required for the app. I am very disappointed.

Sounds right. Even if the phone still works perfectly, the tech is 5 years old now, and in order to get cutting edge app technology you gotta have something that can run it well. I had a Galaxy S5 from that era that I had to give up in November 2018 because I had 4 or 5 apps that were a mess to use. Bite the bullet and upgrade.
