Recent update has affected Activity Spectra

Now the Activity Spectra doesn’t work, Specifically it is very difficult to scroll down through the pathogen’s you have to wait five seconds for it to scroll two lines. I don’t know what they’ve changed recently but it used to be very smooth.

Edit: app developers fixed issue quickly and responded to my query! Updated to 5 stars!

Thank you for your update! We work hard to keep our systems functional on a wide array of devices, and appreciate customer feedback when things aren't working properly.

I downloaded the app but find that was not actually a purchase. I am glad the purchase was not final as I see I missed an important point. With further evaluation I discovered the content will disappear after one year. When I have purchased materials, what I do with the resource is my business. It appears such intense control of the resource may be for greed. When others have addressed this concern, I read the responses which state the purpose of the disappearance of materials was to discourage use of outdated material. What does my use of materials have to do with you? You are not my father. I don't buy that excuse, so I am not buying the resource. I am disappointed in the name and will find another resource to invest my trust and my money in.
Sad day.

We're sorry to hear that you do not find medical reference subscriptions to be of value. At less than $2.50/month, our subscriptions provide critical life-saving information in a convenient format at a very reasonable rate.

Great functionality

Much easier to navigate than the standard pocket sized books, and provides updates whenever available. Also works in areas of limited service!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review. Sanford Guide is based in a rural area, so we appreciate the challenges of working in areas without connectivity. Internet access is only required for external links and to receive content updates.
