Problematic features lessen usefulness. Everytime the app is loaded/accessed it runs through a prolonged; time consuming search for updates and then syncronizes, during which it can't be used. Also, the search engine is terrible, too specific and unforgiving; requiring the user to use the exact names and precise spelling of inquires. Better off using Google to search PDR.

I would have liked to give it more stars, because as a student, having this handy would have helped a lot. The first problem was with creating an account. There were no professions listed, and so I could not proceed to the next step. In turn, I could not access any information on the app. I'm uninstalling it, but I honestly hope the creators fix the issues.

Just got a new phone and App did not transfer. Now I cannot download it, or open. I REALLY need this app to work. Shows installed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but it won't let me log in. Does not recognize my email and I have been using this app for years. Looks like others are having the same issue,
