The problem is that DNS is currently basically broken.  DNS requests go unencrypted, in the clear and there is no kind of proof that the answer has not been read or tampered with.  

This (app) solves one part of that problem and not well really.  The connection between you and one or two DNS servers are encrypted.   The dns requests you make cannot be examined or changed by your ISP or other ISPs in the chain.  

It doesn't solve the problem of proving the DNS record is accurate.
