Great content but the UI is hard to use

This app is a great idea and has really good content and information but I found it to clunky to use especially as someone with a disability. I just wanted to give some constructive feedback to help improve it :)

The medication section was very limited in it’s entry, I have lots of different types of medication and dosages in both ml and g, not just 1 “pill”. It also was hard to add in individual conditions, I could see them duplicate when I edited the title/condition but couldn’t delete the incorrect ones.

Sections such as Response Capacity only had a small text box to type into, make it hard to review what was written.

Adding Contacts was a bit difficult as sometimes it wouldn’t confirm with the “done” button, and in terms of UI, having the Select From Contacts bottom at the button instead of the top was a bit confusing for me.

I got a bit frustrated and didn’t finish to the export stage so not sure how looks but I think it’s a really good feature.

Great idea but….

This app does help in reminding me of what I need to do to prepare for an emergency, however…….. it doesn’t display properly on my iPhone, so once I’ve finished entering information the “done” tab is missing or is under other text, and if you use the back button you lose the information you’ve entered. Also, if I have more than one device it doesn’t appear to share across devices, so I have to enter it twice. Is this right or am I missing something?

Need to be able to delete incorrect information

I agree with the review above mentioned the adding of medication. Please allow to delete duplicates and correct the information added.
