When I needed it, I didn’t get help
I so wanted to rely on this app. I had installed this app because I felt that I could trust it to provide the emergency information I needed should one ever arise. I felt secure in that. So, when I faced an emergency poisoning incident I was surprised, and disappointed, that this app didn’t come up to my expectations. In this case, the emergency didn’t require a 911 call nor a trip to the ER. All that I needed was a simple step by step guide to address the situation. This app didn’t deliver. I ended up having to find what I needed on the internet. Now, I was glad that at least there were instructions to call 911. And, there are ways to determine if that’s even needed. The information is general and basic; not at all what I expected. I could have saved time by going directly to my browser for answers.
Amazing but one issue
Love the app. I have a 4, 7, and 13 year old and we live on a farm and accidents have happened and the app's treatments work perfect and the advice on it too. But, before I updated the app on January 29, 2016 there was an agriculture section and now that I have updated it on January 30, 2016 the agriculture section is gone. If you could, please fix this that would be good, Thankyou.
I have to agree with several reviews- most of the time it does say to call 911, but what if there is no cell service? However, it is very helpful for minor accidents. It is easy to quickly find resources to help the hurt person, because it lists household items in which you can use in case of lack of actual medical supplies. It even tests you to make sure you know what to do immediately.
