  • Love it!

    By Mi_Key_87
    I purchased this app as a student. Now, I’m an RN and use this app all the time. It’s helpful for remembering the specifics of medications or looking up meds that are new to me.
  • An app that always comes through.

    By My Mom Calls Me Peach
    For all of my spelling and synonym needs. Plus games to keep up my verbal skills!
  • Don’t Waste Your Money

    By ScJonesrx
    Big Waste especially since there’s Apps that can provide you with the same information for little to no cost.
  • Shameful

    By ShawnLe
    Shameful and unethical! The app keeps harassing customers to rate it and provide a click box with all 5 stars filled in. Each time it harasses me it got one less star; now only one star. Apple should not allow this!
  • Willing to give 5 stars

    It is the only app for drug guide that come from reliable sources and give you free update. I use to use Unbound app, but you have to pay yearly to keep your subscription valid. Useful and I use it regularly
  • Update request

    By Moe ua
    Hi is there any upcoming updates for the medical references
  • You can count the information available

    By Hadji Atam
    There is not enough information available. I hope they will update all the information on this app. Some of the information are old and not reliable. Can I have a refund please.....
  • Not enough information

    By jcastellon0531
    This app doesn't carry even a quarter of what their books do... I want a refund that's how bad it is. Put the info you have in books in these apps!
  • Not so hot...especially for fifty bucks!

    I paid $50 for this app; I would expect it to have a better search engine. So far, my money has been wasted; I had hoped to be carrying something lighter and faster than the paper version of Mosby's. I was wrong. It is incapable of searching text within the app; without this functionality, it is incapable of locating BRAND NAMES. This is an extremely critical function, particularly for students like me; we are required to identify drugs by BRAND and GENERIC names for daily credit. Would it really be so hard for the authors to provide something better for this kind of cash? It does appear to have all the data found in the paper version, so it's not completely bad; but if your task is to find a GENERIC name by looking up the BRAND name, don't waste your money.
  • How about...

    By AurumNonVulgi
    Sync favorites in multiple devices, a search by Brand Name would be awesome! Great app though
