Just plain does not work properly

I was using the older app and it was fine. I downloaded the new one because the old one is no longer going to be supported. I was excited to explore it and see what improvements were made. Apparently the biggest change is all dogs of all ages, breed, sex, age, and size aren't broad enough parameters, and I need to broaden my search. Same thing happens with animals in the cats and others sections too.

UPDATE: I changed my rating to a 3 rather than 1 because I managed to get it working. However, the app continually freezes, flashing an error message. The only way I've been able to get it to reset it to turn my phone completely off. This is better than the 'no results found' that I was getting before, but still frustrating enough that I'd rather use Petfinder in my browser.

PS: I'm on a brand new iPhone 5c with all the latest updates.

Works very poorly. Very disheartened for pets in need of homes. :(

1. WHEN it WAS opening, you could see the pets picture, but when you'd click on pet to open their description the app would crash and completely close.
2. Now when I even try to open the app it immediately says "Error! Cannot open data" or something similar.

Frankly, this is ridiculous and no way to run an organization.

It seems ALL the shelters in our area only use only Petfinder now. I feel bad for the shelters relying on this service, but feel worse for the pets in need of a home.

I've shutdown and restarted my phone. I've removed the app and reloaded it. I have an iPhone 4S. If this is met for a droid don't offer it in the App Store until it supports the platform. I don't think that's the issue though seeing the previous comments here. I've also had this issue on my computer, and I see there that others have too.

Is it really that difficult to run a successful program in this day and age???

Please respond with an action Petfinder.

It works stop crying

This application does have an issue or two. Once and a while it'll say "no results found" and gets stuck. Guess what? Take 2 seconds and restart the app. It's a non profit application that shows you available rescue dogs based around your cell phones location. It's not an app for a billion dollar bank trying to make repaying them easy. I Used it and adopted a dog a week or so later. I used a cell phone app to adopt a dog from a rescue shelter. Imagine telling someone that 7 years ago. I have an iPhone 5s and it works almost perfectly.
