Great concept, but buggy

This a great app in concept. I'm a visual learner myself and I work with interns and students, so it's a nice portable reference even to show them. I think it could have a good niche, BUT multiple entries just don't work (try click on circle of confusion and critical focus among others) and I have to restart the app more often than I should for freezing up.

Especially since I paid $10 for this app, the beta behavior is unacceptable! The 3 stars in the rating are for the content and attempt alone! For me to recommend it fully, feel great about my purchase, and love it, add more entries and spend some time debugging and making the search more responsive (the items should auto populate as I type in the search field, not wait for me to hit search).

Bonus points: a link to click to go to an alternate related reference work for more info, or to Movieola learning Webinars, or even to buy recommended books on the subjects could be a good tie in.
