A perfectly functional app was updated on 4/23/2013 and, since then, the home page crashes back to the startup splash screen, on first load, while attempting to preload Health articles. There is an ongoing problem with this (cr)app detecting and maintaining access to existing network connections. Possible inability to connect through network proxy. Host OS is Win8 x64. FIX THIS BEFORE ADDING NEW FEATURES!!!

Very nice app from CDC with lots of health information. Very nicely done with lots of health related information. I like new layout of application with more pictures on main screen. This new update makes so much easy to read content...

I really like what I have access to. I don't have a touch screen and the app won't scroll over so I can access all of the sections.

I am currently a first year medical student and use the CDC website quite frequently. While this isn't a complete substitute for the website, it is great for quickly and easily staying up to date with what bugs are going around, as well as many other things!
