I downloaded the app but it does not work. As someone already mentioned, it keeps flashing like it opened, however, it does not come on. In other words, it flashes but then goes back to the home screen on your device. This would be a great resource but right it is not. Can you fix it??

Poor navigation through the App

Good start but more work is needed. It is difficult to navigate through the manual.

-At the end of a section a note comes up that says to press the arrow below, however no arrow exists so I can't continue to the next part of the section. It would be better if you could scroll through the whole section or at least swipe page by page.
-I can go back a section by swiping left to right but not forward by swiping the opposite direction. A navigation control might work better.

Nice app, but as mentioned previously by another reviewer, more work needs to be done. In addition to the irritating message and having to press the forward button (some times more than once) in order to advance, the bookmark only closes the app. Still beats having to take this huge document around, and even navigating through the paper version.
