First Aid

As said before the light grey text is too light making legibility difficult.

Great_app_but.... ,


Amazing app, but… it might be useful if you included a page on how to locate a pulse and maybe a metronome counter for while the rescuer is doing CPR. Again I absolutely love your app and it is providing people with the resources and potential to save lives!

Great but currently broken

A useful app. Currently not working on iPhone 5s running iOS 12.2. Just getting a blank screen and there’s no other way to report this.
