Customer Reviews

Previously my favorite app, now a worthless app

I started to type a longer review with a long list of new problems, but every reviewer here is listing them. Here are a brief few:

- Now very inefficient to access a medication and get dosing information. As a physician, the extra time and complexity this adds is unwelcome.
- Ads in the PAID version?!? That's unforgivable. When an app costs > $150, why in the hell would these guys put ads in the fully-paid version? Suicidal?
- Low-contrast blue-on-white text. Makes my eyes bleed.
- Several aspects of functionality now simply GONE, such as being able to rearrange apps or favorites.
- The global search now returns TONS of AthenaHealth bloat, making what you are actually looking for much harder to find.

AthenaHealth bought Epocrates and decided to fix things that weren't broken, and added many layers of corporate bloat to the app.

With Medscape and MANY alternatives available, I suspect we will see the rapidly hemorrhage customers until the current director is fired and someone without an agenda to "improve" everything about Epocrates is hired as a replacement, hopefully someone who has some clue about User Interface Design.

Update causing crashing

I can't even pull up any drug information since updating; it just keeps closing. Unfortunately, an app like this is going to be used by a specific subset of individuals who need it when they need it and if you break it so it's unusable, you won't have happy would be nice to be able to pick which version you would like to use as many times, updates simply don't work for certain people for one reason or another. I'm really sorry I updated this...i thought "what could it hurt?" Now I know...I'm sitting at work needing to look at alternatives for a medication and I can't. Thanks :(

Significantly disappointed.

I, like most reviewers here, have been significantly disappointed with some of the more recent updates. This was an app I used on a daily basis and liked the functionality. But now, with the more recent updates, the interface is quite cluttered and more time consuming to traverse. Now, with my latest update, It won't even load any medications. Horrible, especially for an app that cost more than $150!! I will be deleting this app and hope that this company realizes how many customers they are losing and make some improvements to this once excellent app.
