    Tables of Content (linked) now make this a useable reference. There is still a lot of keyboard latency when typing into a search field however - like several seconds on the iPhone 4.

  • Terrible

    by ILM td

    Have to use arrow buttons instead of touch screen to scroll or turn page. Bery clunky Search only works with one section at a time, does search live (thus locking up the typing while it searches after every letter). Search returns too many responses, with no summaries to help pick the right one. Return to search screen - it has forgotten your search completely so start from scratch.

  • Lots of info, cheap, but not very usable

    by FlyingSinger

    Search is not only slow but results show only section numbers, no text in context so no way to choose from multiple results. This is made worse because search page resets to blank when you return so you have to start over and remember to avoid your previous incorrect choices! This plus no font control makes this app close to useless. If you do find something you can bookmark, but bookmark list shows only section numbers. I should have spent the $10 on a better FAR app. Already bought Tekk AIM app which is pretty good.

  • Far/aim

    by Glewisfly

    Not very user friendly, small print can't expand.

  • Disappointing

    by MartyBalt

    Like the previous reviewer, I am running this app on iPhone 4 and the search function is uselessly slow. Tried to search new term "line up and wait" and it doesn't show up. Glad I didn't spend large dollars and I'm quite shocked considering I've bought from pilotmall before and that experience was stellar.
