UPDATE: Finally seems to be working after latest update, but did have to delete and reinstall the app, and wait a good few mins for the initial download. Still has some quirks - things not opening properly etc. Developer is quick to reply/responsive at least which is appreciated. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Pretty frustrating. Kinda an app you need to work right and immediately, and presumably also a pretty simple app, but same as all the others, just have a blank grey screen I can't get past on opening.

Hi Jeffrey, last week an upgrade was released to resolve issues that I expect were leading to your crashes. Please let me know if this helps get you the app properly installed. If the crashes are continuing, please email ccull@icehealthsystems.com for assistance. Protocols are also available online at https://protocols.ahsems.com. Thank you. Chad

Took a full day before anything would load beyond the initial blank screen that I would finally close after 5 full mins. When it did finally load, there are button redundancies. And finally, there is no functionality of the android 'back button' like there was with the old app, trying to go back just takes you out of the app as if you'd hit the home button instead and it makes for poor usability and decreased ease of navigation within the app.

Nothing more convenient than a medical control protocol app that doesn't load so you don't have quick access. The response of "you can just use the website if this doesn't work" doesn't really help when out working rural with limited to no service coverage. So glad they forced the old app to be offline without first ensuing this app ACTUALLY worked as intended.

Hi Cody, upon further discussion and testing, I expect that your downloads partially failed somehow. Can you try reinstalling on a high speed internet connection? The downloads are in excess of 100MB now. I do see download times exceeding 10 minutes successfully so it could take some time. We will be looking for a better solution.

What's new

Resolved issue preventing cellular data download. Please know that data downloads may exceed 100MB.
Resolved issue with Back button closing app.
