Instant access to needed ICS structures

Good app to have with easy to use selections. Highly recommend

So far it's been very buggy and hard to find information. When I've done searches for specific things, either it's a long list or empty. Sometimes when I click on a search, it goes to main page. Even the main page has vague terms and hard to navigate (not laid out like paperback). Very hard to use and not worth the $$ however gave 2 stars because technically the information is there.

Buggy and not user friendly

Not impressed at all with the app, the search function is somewhat of a pain, for example if I search "high rise" it shows no results, you must type "high-rise" and have the exact verbiage to produce results. That is the last thing you want on an emergency scene. The app also crashes intermittently when being used.
