    Shaun Mceuen Published date: October 18, 2015

    App directs me to wrong case. Love the app, but if I search a case in case tips amd then select the case it opens up a completely different case. Example: If I search prostatectomy and select prostatectomy robotic it opens up case tips for AAA. But if I scroll down to prostatectomy it will open up prostatectomy like its supposed to. I have sent an email about this and no reply. It has been this way since I first purchased the app a little over a week ago. Full Review
