It is an app I refer to for upgrading my my knowledge. Every topic I have wanted from mental health to general and cancer has bee very favourable written. The information is reliable and from relevant sources. It also stirs my thinking and allows room fro research. I highly recommend this app. You will not be disappointed regardless of your field of practice or learning.

New update making it impossible to search for conditions

Since the new update I have been unable to access information about many conditions and have instead been met with a screen telling me 'Topic cannot be downloaded. Check your device is online' despite my phone being connected to the internet. The app was working very well before the update and was a very useful tool. Please fix this ASAP.

Developer Response ,

I'm so sorry to hear that you were having issues. We noticed the error shortly after the release and a fix was released the day after. But please don't hesitate to contact us at if you are still having issues so we can resolve it as soon as possible. Many thanks, Elin

BMJ Best Practice

Excellent source of clinical information, has become my “go-to” reference. Huge number of clinical calculators but as unable to search them or save favourites not as handy as it might be-would be 5 stars for me if this was added.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! Glad that you find it helpful. I'm happy to say that search for calculators is being added early 2018 and bookmarks will also be added shortly thereafter. Elin
