Please figure out font issues - impossible to use

Survey upon opening was white on off white background. Options once i got into the ap for selecting disease are black on black. Makes no sense and basically impossible to use as it is currently set up. Would be a great resource but far from being functional until fixed.

Poor App

I don’t need another written reference. I need something that will identify an image and give me an answer. A pretty bloated app for such few and poor answers. After this review, it’s history.



Survey needed before I could even open the app. I do not want to fill out 13 personal questions. I deleted the app
