comment Looking for daf yomi app recommendations
The siyum's program guide "HaSiyum" had an ad for every different system with an analysis (on their own terms, though) of it.

@DoubleAA Im not sure why you make a connection between Cholov Yisrael and OU. I Know 50+ people, some of them good friends, who keep cholov yisrael AND OU.

That might be true but the fact that just because your name says something, you might not be it - so that whole point was disproved fine it might lead someone to believe that the person is whatever his name means. Lets say the case of someone's name being wrong is 1 in 10 or 1 in 100 you can't take it for granted they are what their name says. And as far as I could tell from the question msh210 was asking if people with the surname Levi are leviim and the answer I gave is maybe not. I'm sorry but I don't see the problem.
