  • Dorland’s Medical Dictionary

    By Dr, Bob H
    Excellent reference for both general use and the most advanced practicioner.
  • Interface could use some work, but a very helpful app

    By brian_8155
    Content is concise and well rounded with enough to satisfy before reaching for alternate sources if needed. I frequently compare entries with Taber’s for a quick overview, as the perspectives are different but mostly complement each other. MobiSystems could learn a bit from Unbound’s interface, particularly the branched entries without leaving the main definition, higher bitrate voiceover, expanded indices, and more illustrations (“illustrated” is a bit misleading). The word history is helpful when revisiting terms. Not a fan of the “homepage” starting point and find raising the keyboard twice to clear old entries to input new ones annoying. Overall, a good product that gets frequent if not daily use. Worth the price and then some. MUCH BETTER NOW. Congrats Team.

    A must for any doctor
  • Could have been five

    By Akamas
    Nice medical dictionary but very slow. Otherwise worth five stars if it ran faster and did not have to have access to the Internet. Also the ads are annoying, especially since I paid full price for the app.

    This publication is a “life saver” to those of us in the medical field—or at least it is like our “right hand.” It is very descriptive, thorough, and has excellent cross references.
  • Great

  • Limited Content

    By SuperGr
    Compared to some other Medical Dictionary Apps, I feel this one is limited in content, user ability and the interface isn’t as smooth.
  • Annoying pop-up

    By WASeattle
    The incessant requests for a rating are highly annoying on a paid app.
