Customer Reviews

  • Good reference but delayed fluview data

    by DomnuleRoush

    Very good resource for general information but unfortunately several weeks out of date for flu activity. This is a shame because that is what a busy doc would most like. Clicking "update" doesn't load latest data. So that's not the problem. Five stars if they fix this bug.

  • Terrible

    by CSR-MA

    Our tax dollars not at work. This app hasn't been updated since August of 2013. All data and content is outdated. When you open the app it says "Updating Content" with the spinning wheel that never stops and never downloads anything. Waste of time and memory. Would be a valuable resource if they'd keep up with it during the flu season.

  • Crashes

    by Cece812

    Won't open at all since update. Just crashes. Even before update it was not very useful as data was old & there was no news about latest news about flu in Asia.

  • Worthless, does not work even after several installs

    by WA writer

    symptoms include: - launches with a blank screen only - content updates fail every time Vzn iPhone 4S, IOS 6.1.3, not jailbroken. Reliable, fast Internet connection. Do not waste your time until they fix it.

  • Worthless because inaccessible

    by Dr. Paulie

    Whenever the app is opened it freezes in an "updating" mode for several minutes, then says "unable to update" but immediately tries again, and again, and again.

  • Not being maintained

    by Boat Person

    Data presented is dated November, 2012. Today's date is January 9, 2013.

  • Outdated data

    by Dan Donahue

    Two stars for stability and ease of use. The info is 3 weeks old and I can't seem to enlarge the graphs to make the legible. Need to make the app more current than the desktop version for real time out of office viewing.

  • Good job CDC

    by ccookMPH

    Very nicely written app. Bravo to CDC or making this avail. Helpful to me as a public health official. Recommended. Stable on ios6 so far.
