App Reviews

  • Does not work!!

    By Nurse val
    I was told this was a great resource from my professor. It has a bug and will not even open. Says there are no products for prescriptions.
  • disappointing

    By girl from afrique
    Scanty content. There is not enough information for the price of the app.
  • Free trial?

    By Herberll
    Why would I pay $9.99 for a subscription when I don't even know if I like the app or find it useful? A free trial would be appreciated.
  • Meh

    By ZekeMama
    I find Medscape to be a lot more helpful. The Beers list is handy, but otherwise I don't use this app.
  • Worthless!!

    By Jumbodog1
    If I could give this app zero stars, I would have. This app has little information and none of it is useful to anyone familiar with healthcare.
  • Weak app

    By Indyman2000
    Difficult to navigate. Poorly written. Unintuitive. Very disappointed.
  • Poor layout, limited tools

    By MrGrayD
    I was hoping for a paid app, that it would have a lot more functionality. It is not well designed and doesn't have as many functional assessment tools as a resident or practicing physician would want. It could be improved by changing the algorithm layout to not be individual question based.
  • START-STOPP criteria

    By Keri H.
    I would love to see the START-STOPP criteria for medication use in the elderly incorporated into this app. It is a good source in addition to the Beers list.
  • Frozen

    By cathy345
    I paid and downloaded and it does nothing-incomplete home screen just frozen. Deleted and installed again, same thing. I want a refund!! Update fixed the freezing issue. Thank you!
  • This could have been good

    By WildHog
    Many things missing. For example: Depression: an interactive scoring system / checkboxes should have been put in here. This is something one uses everyday in evaluating geri pts. Afib: Rate control medication guidelines in this population; the CHADS2 scoring, HASBLED - where are those? A notes field (for a bookmark). I await the changes.
