Great app, runs a little slow

I am getting multiple medical certifications right now and I am constantly studying and coming across new medical terms. This app is great with having the term definition or getting it for you off the internet. Very helpful. Just a little slow when erasing a past search to search a new word or term.

Technical difficulty.

The app is fantastic as far as it’s wide data base. Unfortunately it crashes on me as well and I have to keep re-opening the app.

Hope you can resolve this problem in a future update.
