Does not work
This app should not have been released; it simply does not work. Having asked me to register with Microsoft, it then gave me no method of editing my profile or entering any data. Searches for local A&E or GP surgeries also did not work, and the PIN I set was not asked for when I re-entered the app. There are no developer details on the App Store, and no way of accessing support from the app. Absolute rubbish.
Good idea let down by reality
I thought this looked good from the screen shots and description. The problems I found were in 2 areas:
1. There is no data for local information. I know my local GP, A&E etc but I can't find them on here
2. There is no data for "gender" or "blood group" on my profile - and no way to add this information
Regarding the problem with entering your date of birth in US format - the app (stupidly) default to English (US) formatting, you have to change it to English (British)
When this is updated to actually have local data, I'll try again but at the moment it is of no use to anyone
Great app learnt a thing or two just by browsing through
