I consider myself to be reasonably well informed about general first aid, but this app allows me to brush up on my knowledge, especially about conditions that I have not come across, like febrile seizures. I enjoy the quizzes, although there seems to be a bug, whereby it doesn't always record your answer accurately, so it gives you a wrong mark when you actually answered correctly.

This is a fabulous little app. There's quizzes In here. Why not have an evening of learning and quizzing. Using this app has reminded me of those little things it's easy to forget and not know you have. I've been a first aider from my Army days. I've found the quizzes bring the learning alive. If you get answers wrong be glad you did. You'll learn more by trying making mistakes. It's a great internal confidence boost.

Fantastic app, super helpful. Off the top of my head, the only improvement I can think of would be a daily or weekly notification to encourage people to get up to date information and retake tests to refresh their memory. Other than that, this app is brilliant precisely because it does exactly what it's supposed to do, no more, no less.
