Other Reviewers Correct About Not Working
I was using the browser based site, and decided to download the actual iPad app again to try. Searched for symptoms, then found a page. Clicking on the links for related topics only froze the app. Closed the app and reentered it. The page I was looking for popped up. It appears to be exactly the same page as the website. Best to just use the actual website in a browser. All the ads make using the site not so fun. Deleted the app.
Use the webmd website instead
Using an iPad? Forget this app and just use safari to view the WebMD website instead. The content is great, but the user experience is bad with the app, and much better with the http website.
If you search for a condition, this app just adds a layer of hassle followed by giving you a bad browser to view the website page. It is bad because you cannot view the full width of the page. Instead you must constantly wipe the page left and right to view each line of text.
I have had this app on my original IPad for over a year now and it works perfectly! I love it and have no issues with it whatsoever.
