App Reviews

  • Useless

    This app has literally become unusable. Half the time I open a drug and none of the tabs open or it opens information on another drug. As a pharmacist, this used to be a nice, handheld reference. How useless now.
  • Junk

    I tried renewing my account and the app continues to say that my account is expired! All of this irritating nonsense and getting charged for an app I cannot even use.
  • IBM Broke it, and Refuses to Fix It

    IBM took over this app from the original developer over 7 months ago, and has made no attempt to fix the problem they have created... One of the advantages of this app (mobile version) is that the medication information is constantly updated. What they don’t tell you is that ever since IBM took over, each time medications are updated (every few days), the update breaks the app and only displays one medication, no matter which medication you select. THIS MAKES THIS APP DANGEROUS FOR PATIENTS, MEDICAL STAFF, AND ANYONE USING THE APP. I am an RN, and I rely on the app for looking up drug side effects for my patients. Since the app breaks each time it is updated, someone might select Morphine (for example), but would actually be reading the side effects for Vitamin C. VERY DANGEROUS. The only way to make the app work correctly is to delete it each time there is an update, reinstall it, then re-enter your user name and password. What a pain. If medical personnel don’t know about this bug, they can do medication errors, which can affect patient safety, and risk the person’s medical license. I have been calling the developer for almost a year about this problem, but all they say is that they are aware of it. They have never bothered to fix it, which means this app is USELESS, and DANGEROUS! BUY SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS SAFE, AND ACTUALLY WORKS.

    The app will not fully down load on new ipad. Did use on old iPad and liked it a lot Can still use in iphone but concerned it will still work on iPhone when I renew in 2019
  • No longer usable

    I used to use this app daily at work, but I’m no longer able to login. This has been an issue for at least a couple of months now. I pay a yearly fee to use this app so I’d expect the issue to be taken care of, but it’s still unaddressed. Disappointed.
  • Mayo Clinic doc- this app has become trash

    I used to love using this app in the clinical setting. Unfortunately it’s become rife with bugs. Now when I try to create a userID and password I get an error stating that my password and/or userID is incorrect- how is this possible when I’m creating a new account? I end up in an endless recursive loop of sheer hell and am no longer able to use this app anymore. I’m very disappointed to see that IBM is creating such an unpolished and buggy app.
  • Do not purchase this app!! Theft

    I began usage several years ago and all was well. Great reference for me and all of the physicians in my hospitals(22). I’ve now had four crashes of the app, repurchased it three times only to have it get stuck on the last drug searched . Customer service gave the same solution each time: delete, re-download , fill in password but not email address to recover or reset a password ( makes NO sense), and after doing that three times, I’m done with any of these apps. You have to repurchase it. I am a VP of Medical Affairs/ CMO of 22 hospitals and over all pharmacies for them. I am now directing all reports to me and all medical staff to delete the app and use another app which I will suggest. It’s a shame to have something this simple to fix derail your product. Terminate your app developers.
  • Not worth it

    -missing too many drugs -updates have ruined the app -not worth a yearly fee
  • Used to use it daily

    I used to cherish this app and I’ve been using it for years and happily paying the fee. This most recent update has changed the layout/the simplicity of using this app so much I’m really disappointed by it.. I no longer can use it as a quick reference tool that was easy to maneuver .. now there’s so much to weed through and this “chunky extra” that I haven’t really found to add anything of value . Just my two cents.. I’m not sure if I’ll renew when it expires. I must say I have been a huge fan of this app for many years prior to this update and have easily given it 5 stars in the past.
  • Completely broken

    First off, the app makes it a hassle to use it at all (“restore purchase” issues for the subscription you have to pay for to use the app at all.) Once that problem is solved, however, it still doesn’t work. I’ve reinstalled multiple times and it’s stuck only showing me the info for the last drug I successfully looked up, not the one I’m currently searching. So, it’s useless. Too bad; it used to be a good resource.
