What's New in Version 3.4.5
Some fixes for Italian and Spanish
Developer needs to update app
First message you get on opening. This app hasn't been updated in 4 years and the last updates were merely language fixes. Not worth $2 - not enough info and graphics are dated.
I love this app, I just wish it could zoom in on red blood cells.
