Hi Vincent,

thank you for your input. :)

Yes, a separate app would probably be the best option, but like I said 
before, I can hack stuff together, but from scratch, not so much. :) If 
there's anything that I can take as an example, I'll be happy to look 
into it.

About the popularity, you're right, the service is not very known 
outside Portugal, but here is quite popular.
