    The material you allows us to view free does not give adequate information to entice me to purchase this product.

    I purchased this life time access, but unable to use it or sign in to use. I contacted them several times without success. They simply do not respond. I had to purchase another drug guide to use. I don't like this company, I'm really not typing all that has taken place. Keep your money and run...
  • Very useful app!

    I was happy to find more high alert coverage and patient safety information in this app than in any other drug guide. Also, this app is integrated with 800+ built-in weight-based drug dosing calculators. All this makes my life easy. Highly recommended.

    I buy this app every year. I’m not happy about this purchase. The drug information is all over the place. I enjoyed the picture, class, indication and generic drug info right at the beginning. It’s a waste of time to have to scroll drug info. Maybe if you could customize your display. Otherwise I’m not happy. I would not recommend this app, maybe use the previous year, until the creator fix this app.
  • Great app, but please enable landscape view

    Thanks for producing a great app with a very easy to use design! A quick suggestion - please enable landscape view! I have an iPad with the Apple keyboard stand and not having the ability to view in landscape makes it quite inconvenient. Otherwise, this is a great app! Thank you!

    Bought this app for the audio help with pronouncing the drug names and the audio does not work.
