The app has a few glitches

This app is intended to be a progressive course to assist with the management of anxiety and depression, where each question must be answered, and each lesson completed, before progressing to the next. It seems that the lessons also have to be completed within a stipulated time period or you have to redo the previous lesson - this isn't explained in the intro. Also, the app seems to get "stuck" on question 22 of 22 in the introductory assessment of lesson 1, which makes it impossible to progress, and there is no in-app support or email to address these issues. A further issue is that the app isn't configured for iPad, so is difficult to use with an external keyboard. Given the high cost of the app it shouldn't have these issues
