This app is an electronic version of the excellent book "Quick Reference Atlas of Dermatology" by Dr Ian Williams & Dr Vivienne Ankrett which won a Royal College of GPs award for education in dermatology. It is one of my favourite books. It has pride of place on my shelf and is within easy reach at all times. Finding what you want is easy and the short notes are comprehensive and useful. I also find it useful to show patients the pictures so that they feel confident I have the right diagnosis.
A quote from Amazon about the book - "This is the ultimate in easy to read note format book with excellant illustrations. RCGP award winner - well deserved. Great for GPs, hospital Drs , nurses and students."

Ratings and Reviews
*After updating to 1.1, this is a solid clinical reference. The addition of search and links to google images for additional pics of each condition are great improvements.
This is a very helpful reference. The picture quality is quite good (most hold up well when zoomed). While the sidebar index works pretty well most of the time, I agree w/ a prior reviewer that a 'search' function would improve the ap. (Case in point: I looked under 'R' but did not find 'rosacea'; later, I stumbled upon it under 'acne rosacea'.) In a perfect world, search might even be tied to keywords such that I could search for 'face' 'pruritic' and get a list of conditions manifesting on the face which itch. A further enhancement, dwn the road, would be > 1 pic per condition, particularly for those w/ a range of presentations and to include derm pathology on non-caucasian skin. That all said, a great start and one I will definitely consult.
Very good beginning
There has been an absence of dermatology applications. This one is good and has the potential of completelly filling up that void!!!. To start, I would suggest to have a search function by picture and add the basic search by condition; currently you have to scrool down to the condition you want to see. My third suggestion is to add at least one more picture per condition. The ability to search by area could be very useful as well. Keep up the good work and I will revise my rating to 4 or five stars !!!!
Version 1.4 is amazing!
This app has had some bad reviews in the past but I have to say that it is very improved! There is a very large amount of pictures and I have found it very useful for studying. I'm a Physician Assistant student and it is proving to be well worth the $3.99. I love it and you should give it a try.
