App Reviews

  • Doesn’t work

    By Migdala
    I just downloaded this app and then removed the download because it didn’t work. All you do is type the name of a drug and you get a blank screen, nothing else. For $24.99/year I expected this to be a great app. Well it doesn’t work, so don’t waste your money. I’m disappointed...😣
  • Finally updated after months of not working.

    By NateTheRN
    App’s framework has finally been updated to work with the most recent versions of iOS. Back to a 5 star rating as long as it continues to work.
  • Unusable

    By Kilgoretrout70
    Paid for this app so I could use it for clinicals, and every single drug that I look up gives me an error code instead of information.
  • App doesn’t work

    By Jshort2
    The last time the app version was updated was 2 years ago. Everyone you click on a Med you get an error and the med will not open. Don’t waste your time or money.
  • Names Only

    By B Arena
    The app will show you the medication information less than half the time. The paperback doesn’t require constant updating and does not help app function. Buy book or look up on Google to save money and time.

  • App has not worked!!!!

    By this app is usless
    After a recent update the app is no longer functioning. Contacted customer support who acknowledged the issue and said the app would be updated and functioning in a month or so. Still waiting for that to happen but they had no issue collecting my annual payment.
  • Keeps showing an error

    By Rat belly
    I got this app but it does it work. After looking up a drug and selecting that drug it will show an error. Payed a lot of money for this app and I expect it to work.
  • Worst app ever!

    By jllhayes
    This app does not work, used the contact us and was told I had to wait till the App Store receive the new addition, that was in February, still does not work!
  • Not working at all

    By sherrimom27
    App is not working at all since I upgraded my iPhone iOS. It continues to say it is loading, but it never does and remains grayed out so I cannot use it. This is a very expensive app for this to be happening. Please fix it or refund my money! In addition, when I tried to contact your support it won’t allow it!! It is finally loading on my iPhone, but not my iPad. However, on my iPhone it keeps saying reference error every time I click on the drug!! I have always used this app a lot and this is very frustrating!!!!!!
