Ratings and Reviews
The "text" section is very large and needs an index like the original. Liked the original because it wasn't full of graphical crap.
USA Manual Express
As a lover of the original version, I was forced to the “express” when my iPhone upgraded its operating System to ver 11. Once opening the new version I was faced with a laundry list of texts that in some cases show ten versions of the same title only having to open up each one for the different section of the Document. A complete lack of organization by type or topic. Similar situation for people - want to see presidents, you need to search for presidents only to get them in alphabetical order. Folders and sorted by chronology in office like the old one would have been preferred. Am certain I will not use it as the reference I used to because finding what I need would be too painful.
Faulty or Misleading???
Some of the info on this app is good and useful. However, the news option only gives headlines and a few lines of text but the full text can’t be opened. The arrow to the right of the partial text does not work. Sad
