On first viewing it has very useful information.

I have one major issue with it. The menus take up about 30% of the screen leaving only 70% for the information. Personally i would would like to see the menus on one page and when you click on a topic it opens a new full sized window with all the screen avaiable for the information and for all of it to be resizable.

I think it's fine - everything worked, and I found the information helpful.

I wasn't worried by the menu.

I'll download and try it later.

Thanks for the feedback bremner, there's always room for improvement and we hope to do a free update at some point.

I spent about an hour this afternoon on my iPad, in the app store, trying to find it.

I'll try again tomorrow.

Just click on Paul's link, and then click on 'View in iTunes' - you can download from there in the normal way.

I got it, thanks FE.

It should also show up in the App Store results if you search for 'PC Advisor'. Thanks again to everyone who's downloaded it.

It may indeed, be free to download, but it's not free to use.

I'm not complaining, just commenting on the "Free app".
