Good for fast consultation


However, I got some problems:

1. The topics separated by tabs is great for fast consultation however when we need to do a whole-text read it gets quite annoying. It would be good to have a buttom to display all tabs in a single page so we can scroll the text instead of simply swipe.

2. The load could be faster.

3. There is no search for the calculators. Also, a "favorite" buttom would be nice to have so we can access our most-used calculators faster.

Besides that, the app is quite functional!
