Receiving several recommendations from fellow SRNA's I was excited to see the discount and bought it immediately. Unfortunately for $80 (originally $100) I was quite surprised to run across numerous grammatical errors, typos, buttons that don't work and others that take you to the wrong information. The user interface is also something that needs more attention as it leaves one wondering what they just paid so much money for. We are all wondering when the next update can be expected. Thank you.

It is a great app and is always super helpful. After the updates it now looks completely different, not bad, just different and the option to add your own case tips was taken away. This is very disappointing to me (hence no 5 🌟), as I was using that option a lot Edit: the option to add own case cards was put back in. Love the app!!

Love the app, very useful. My only wish is that I could make my own entries, some things I want to add and then search for. I use the notes under the entries already in the app, but sometimes I want to add a medication or techniques that I want to remember. I could make my own notes, but I would love it all to be in the same place. Thanks Matt, makes life as an SRNA much better.
