Some bad moments

The app freezes when creating new folders pr saving a reference which makes it pretty useless. Seems not supported any longer.
It would be a good app if it didnt crash all the time. I will rate it 5 stars if I can really use it on my iPad 3.
Ive had it for 15 minutes and its crashed 4 times. Hasnt completed one single search without crashing.
Does everything it says. Is polished and easy to use. Its an indispensable tool for me. Developer quickly helped me set up my universitys proxy server to work in the app. Very happy this.
I compared the major Pubmed apps, and this one is clearly much better than the other ones. Great interface and functionality, has both basic and advanced search options in addition to several options to save and share references.
The proxy doesnt work, Pdf doesnt work... Pls fix, I really want an app that helps me save PubMed articles for later.
