Good info well presented

Work great, if you do the work. BUT, created in 2012 as "the first of 23" but there are no others I can find. Great for what it is.

Sound doesn't work on my ipad

I have a new ipad. The sound from the videos in this app doesn't work. I don't have this problem with any other apps.

Disappointed for Sure! ,

Not a good choice.

This app does not work on the new iPad. Wish I didn't buy it. I hope it gets fixed soon. It does not format properly so it is useless. Right now, a waste of money, beware....I'll repost if it starts working.
