This app isn’t working
A Great Start...
Not bad at all... I did not have the problems the initial reviewers wrote about. The app downloaded quickly and ran perfectly – showing the freshly loaded content within a second or two. The display and interface is user friendly and - overall – I do like the app. I hope future updates will allow access to the past articles, instead of just current ones. With the access to past items they will need to include a search function. Also, other content is currently limited – the image library (at the time I wrote this) only has access to about 30 images, and the app does not let you search for more. Currently, there is no method of looking for any specific type of image content; you simply have to scan through them one at a time. Of course, with only 30 pictures, this isn’t a problem… yet. One final observation; I initially thought the app did not have any access that linked it to the full CDC site. This is (thankfully) not the case. On the home screen of the app, tap on the CDC logo. (There is no indication or instruction that mentions this in the app, and – honestly – it just looks like they put the logo at the top of the screen… It is however, a functional link.)
