Great aide memoire

As an F1/F2 this was a really useful app to help on the long night shifts providing ward cover. A good prompt of things to consider checking/doing/finding out before escalating to seniors. Since then still a useful to refer to when required.

Awesome!

Used it ALL the time when I was newly qualified. Still refer to it quite often. Very useful, concise and largely accurately. Recommended!

Crashes

So paid for this app to aid me in my learning. But it doesn’t allow me to see notes or even click on any of the links. So I can’t look at any descriptions so it doesn’t help... it just shuts the app down with no explanation. Seems riddled with bugs doesn’t seem to work for me. Wasted money I feel.
