Great App, but needs improvement


Thank you so much for the app! It's such an awesome reference. This app could be a lot better if you could improve some of the following suggestions:

1. In-app review/feedback doesn't work well, but fit my case, doesn't work at all. Recommend just provide email if that's how you want feedback.

2. Organization of text and drop downs need sone cleaning up. Just cosmetics, see other apps for organization and presentation of information. Navigation is easy but not clean or intuitive.

3. Create a favorite tab so we can save a list of favorite drugs. It kinda does with the Recent Search but not very good.

4. Create a tab for related drugs when one is looked up.

5. Great idea to have comparison option but it doesn't do much except for loading two drugs on different pages. Comparison should be in a table format with relevant information. For example when you compare two computers, it shows side by side comparison. Would be hard to compare drugs and information are mainly not numeric.

5. Create option for making Flashcards from list of favorite drugs. Just a wish :)

Will provide more feedback later. Thanks and keep up the great work.

Great app


After trying Epocrates, medscape, and pharmacopeia, this is the simplest and most straightforward option I’ve seen. No notifications to wave off when app is opened, you can type the brand name for discontinued brands and it will take you to the generic monograph, you can reorder the headings (dosing instructions, preg/lac, adverse reactions).

Didnt work after last update.


Had to reinstall. Now it's back. Great reference app!
