Poor functionality This should be a wonderful tool but the search function is poor and following the January 2015 my previous bookmarks are now not accessible, so have to start again using the very poor search function.

Just fix this app! Samsung note 1 with Jelly Bean. App announced it was no longer installed so reinstalled. Now hangs at splash screen - no logon prompt, nothing. Now used to staring at the nicely rendered tablets on the background but I would rather the app worked. With a proper search function. With the web BNF virtually unavailable since the changes to access I'm back to the paper version. In the second decade of the second millenium AD this is appalling ineptitude
