App Reviews

  • Not good

    By kellyandmarley0627
    I’ve had problems with this app for the past year. When I try to update, it shuts down. It doesn’t have a lot of the drugs I give regularly. Use a different app.
  • Good information, bad app

    By juliemichele
    Good info but once the subscription is paid for you get an error message and have to contact support to get access to it. Then the app is constantly freezing up and closing you out, makes it hard to look things up. The app has consistent inner updates for the medications but the entire app itself needs an update to make it more functional.
  • I am disappointed

    By Loretta C.
    This app used to work perfectly & was a great help when I saw patients. But now it does not work. I paid for the subscription & it would not restore my purchase. I contacted Apple who told me to contact the developer. This was one years with multiple attempts to reach out to them and I have yet to receive a productive response. The email that was sent was a FAQ. I contacted the developer and & received the same response. So BUYER BEWARE!!

  • App don’t work!

    By dhxudhxhshxjxjc
    Just purchased this app and it won’t work. Keep getting error message saying my subscription has expired and I just bought it 30 minutes ago. So disappointing!! Tried to contact customer service and it said access was denied. Not happy, this app was not cheap. This app doesn’t even earn a star but it made me choose at least one.
  • Blah

    By tbhts
    Crashes all the time search function doesn’t work only way to use is scroll through all medications, won’t update ..... do not get
  • Worth the yearly subscription

    By tml0123
    I originally bought this when I was in nursing school to look up drugs quicker because I didn’t want to search through the hard copy book all night before clinical. Now that I’m a floor nurse it’s even more convenient. I can search drugs in a matter of seconds, look up interactions without having to scroll through 1000 pages or google. I recommend buying the app, I use the app a few times a week minimal, at least a few times every shift.
  • SCAM!

  • Horrible

    By TxMom2Two
    Numerous drugs are missing from the data. I’m talking about popular drugs, like Zofran. Every time I try to update the content, the app just kicks me out and I get nowhere. Really frustrating since this is an app I have to actually pay for. Extremely unsatisfied. Also, good luck contacting support. Now I have to find a new app, and try to get my money back from this one.
  • Problem

    By Aleighya
    I have actually use this app for several years and have loved it up until this past year. The app keeps crashing, wanting updates very frequently. Anytime an update as do the app just repeated the crashes until I uninstall and reinstall it. I’m very disappointed with that this year and I paid the yearly fee and have a been able to use it
