Customer Reviews

What happened?

This app was usable when I needed to quickly reference something. It hasn’t been great for research at any point, but at least it was readable. Now, after the latest round of updates following iOS 11.1.1, the graphics and text are all way to big. Either this app doesn’t support dynamic text, or the developers adapted it for iPhone X, and didn’t care about the users with other versions of iPhones. Please fix this. Your app looks terrible.

*UPDATE* The graphics issue was resolved in a recent update. Thank you.
