3.0 out of 5 stars General Review October 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
I like this app, but I am glad it was free. I wish it was a little more in-depth like my physical-bound book I carry in my emergency first aid kit. But, I like it because it offers some very good tips on some of the more major problems that one can encounter - heart attacks, stroke, broken bones, shock, and burns. I like that it does offer some small video clips of some of the techniques, too. I like the quiz it comes with, as well. Overall, I really like it. If you're not an EMT, then it's something you should have on hand. I like to have it available for when I'm on vacation and away from my bigger, more detailed book.

The fact that it is free was a plus but asking for a donation every time you open it is over the top.

Really nice app. Good features & well organized. I haven't needed it in a high stress situation but seems like it will be easy to find what you need for just about any emergency.

There is so much information in this, on all sorts of issues, for all sorts of problems. Get it, keep it handy on whatever platform you have; keep it on several platforms - yeah - it is that good and that necessary. Be prepared. Use it and learn.

First aid isn't used often enough to keep it fresh in your mind. This app is an excellent tool to do just that. Information is brief but enough to take care of the situation especially if you've had the training.

The problem I have is the develeloper over did it for instance why hide the answers to the questions (not the test questions)? For whatever reason not enough space was given for the tap to work effectively and can get annoying!

But the information is excellent and easy reach on both my Kindle and iPhone.
