  • Good but needs to be updated

    By OzJonesJr
    Like the no nonsense ease of use of the app but it needs to be updated to reflect current recommendations. A good example is pneumonia, out of date.
  • Needs steady ABx updates

    By Doc Powell
    Guidelines now recommend CAP be treated with 2 ABx but EMRA still recommends one. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I still really like the app.
  • Good guide but needs app updates

    By JSLAM1020
    The app is great but needs to be more user friendly and fix the little bugs like needing to click a little lower on the top buttons for them to actually be clicked and the scrolling bar almost in the middle of the screen when you’re reading about anything.
  • Ridiculous purchase process

    By Amgela L
    I purchased this App when I had and Android phone. Now that I have and iPhone and download this same app, since they took their annual payment from me, I cannot is the app because they won’t recognize my phone. I filed a dispute to try getting my money back since i can’t use the app but they wont do it. I just keep getting an error message saying to repurchase the app agsin rather than just restoring the app under the money already collected. I paid thru paypal and have not been able to contact the app seller directly. So I was left with no other alternative but to consider this year’s payment a loss and cancel any further automatic transactions.
  • EMRA rocks but this app does not

    By MRJake-ill
    I wanted to use it on iPad pro with keyboard. App does not work when iPad is in landscape orientation; it stays locked in default and everything is sideways. When i try to zoom in on the antibiogram on iPad or on iPhone, it only makes the freaking header text larger. All the tables are unreadable because you can’t zoom in. Useless, just buy the hard copy, dont bother with the app.
  • Some good, some bad

    By cwgirl197
    There are several mistakes in this guide. The premise is awesome, but the mistakes are not! It needs to be fixed!!
  • Hugely overrated, don’t waste your money

    By Erv72
    This app is almost a joke. The content is sparse, design amateurish, there are unreadable tables one can’t zoom into. Buy something serious, such as John Hopkins. Or use something free and great such as InfectiousDisease Compendium by Mark Crislip. There is no trial for a reason. No professional would buy it. $10 wasted.
  • Lifesaver

    By stefanietayloreis
    I’m in PA school and use this for studying daily! It is such a great little app, and I know I’ll be using it in practice.
  • Nope

    By Mav911911
    So design is more clunky and now more expensive and automatic renewal , lost me on this version and I have happily bought each one in past
  • So easy to use!

    By k_sanchez
    I have been a fan of the book for years and even have attendings asking to borrow it. Finally downloaded the app and couldn’t be happier! It’s so much faster to find the related topic than flipping through a book and the displays are slick. In the app form, the updates are now more frequent instead of waiting for a reprint of the book. I encourage everyone to switch.
