Very Informative and works just fine
I usually use my desktop; but recently am using iPad more. The app installed with no issues. From the home page all the buttons worked correctly. The content, as expected, does not reflect current activity it starts from preceding day. You can select an earlier date from drop down list.
I'm totally shocked that the "PowersThatBe"
Have allowed such a tool and outlet of raw information into the publics hand. This info can still be acquired theough your home pc now but the difference in numbers of people that would take the time to goto the site and read up compared to having this direct pipeline is probably 100 to 1 or higher. Either they had no control or the "PTB" simply don't care because in their minds we the public won't do anything if we see a wrong happen. An example would be the birth certificate and knowledge that our president is not a natural born citizen and yet nobody has done anything.
Just doesn’t work
I was looking forward to using this but it flat out doesn’t work. You get to the home screen and none of the buttons work, then the app crashes :(
