    Starting the Be 911 steps that include the metronome that keeps beat doesnt work. I was able to select that the person is not responsive, then the screen turned black and goes back to main page. Samsung S3. Working flawlessly on iPad

    I've counted it and the beat is as irregular as the patients. It sounds like a sound clip that just keeps replaying. Not a good teaching tool. Don't depend on it.
