Update the app to include support for the newer models of iphone, i.e x and above.
The new updated App is so darn buggy.
First of all if you are without wifi or a cellular connection you’re out of luck because the App won’t work at all and an “invalid user” pop-up appears on the screen. This bug kills the whole purpose of this App which is to get the drug information wherever one is. If I need a data connection to get the drug info, why on earth would I use this App instead of googling it.
Secondly, even when I have a working internet connection, whenever I start the App it takes a good long 3-4 seconds for the “loading” pop-up to disappear. And if I tap the search field during this time I get the “invalid user” error.
These two problems never used to occur during my previous subscription to this App in the year 2016. Don’t know what has changed.
Please fix it soon.
