You get what you pay for

It was unreasonable to expect such a great app to remain totally free forever. The new Pro app ads more content and the ability to view off line. They are constantly upgrading their content and are responsive to users. Typically I get a response within 1 day. I am happy to pay for up the quality of this app. The cost is insignificant. I use it all the time as a refresher and to reinforce my knowledge. Highly recommended for those who have an interest in maintaining and keeping up with the latest regional techniques.

Buggy, poor integration of downloadable content

The content is excellent, no complaints there. The downside is that its nearly impossible to quickly access (wasn’t a problem with the first app). Both my Google Chrome browser at home and my google play app exhibit buggy interfaces. I routinely get kicked to the log in screen instead when I click on the “lessons.” I use this app as a means to quickly review a block (anatomy, dosing, etc.) and often am looking to access the material very quickly. So far this “new” app has been a major disappointment. If you have a subscription you ought to be able to select an “Download all” option and have the material immediately accessible without an internet connection. In my opinion this app was released way too early (before all the interface kinks could be worked out). A for content, C- for implementation; needs a lot of IT work

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback as we are always looking to improve the app. For security reasons, the app was designed to periodically require users to re-enter their log in information. If you are being requested more frequently, this is an easy fix that we will address. With regards to offline access, we wanted to give users the option of deciding what content they wanted to download. Due to the size of the app with all of the content, images and videos, it would take up significant space on mobile devices. It could also impact the functionality of the app. Feel free to contact us directly with any concerns, comments or questions: info@myblockbuddy.com. Thank you

Great content, glitchy app...please fix

The content is great- all useful information. I use it frequently.

But, For an app that I HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE TO, I shouldn’t have to fumble around with the functionality.

For example: when scrolling through a “lesson”, the floating bar at the bottom of the screen doesn’t stay put...it follows the scroll and covers the content you’re attempting to look at. Then a second or two later, the bar drops back down to the bottom of the page.

Another example: When writing “notes” into a lesson, I often have trouble adding anything after I do any deleting- that is to say, if I miss-type something and delete it, I can’t write anymore- it just won’t let me add anything else. Also, If I go back to something I’ve just typed, I can’t add anything to it. In either instance, I have to go out of the lesson completely, then come back into the note and edit it.

Get the bugs fixed. Or your app will eventually become more bothersome than useful, and I’ll cancel my subscription. There are plenty of other resources out there than don’t cost a dime.
