None of the news articles load. I have tried over several different wifi networks and using my own mobile data. The internet works for me in a variety of other ways including browsing my school website and posting this review but none of the articles in this app load. I have tried reinstalling it and restarting my phone but it still pulls up the same message for every article. "The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

My only wish is to be able to login, make notes, save it all, and be able to come back to it. I read this for fun!!

I had this app on my old ipod touch while attending an accreditted vet tech program, and it was so easy to quickly look up articles while studying! Now I'm working hard to finally pass the VTNE, and finding free resources for studying is so difficult (the test itself is $340!) and the fact that the Merck Manual has so much for free and is so accessible is a gamechanger. Wish me luck!!
