Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic, efficient block app with one flaw
Constantly updated with the latest blocks and techniques. Pictures and video included. Quick and easy to use. Highly recommended.
Update: This app is fantastic, except for one flaw. All pictures and videos are now stored on a server instead of on your device. My hospital, as well as others that I know of, block this data so the app is practically useless while I'm at work. Please let us at least have the option to download all data to our devices.
Awesome app with TERRIBLE battery drain
I love the app and the updates have made the app much better over time. I love the new icons that show the distribution of the expected block. The pictures and descriptions are great. However, the glaring issue with the app is the fact that is drains your battery BAD. I left the app in the background and of all my battery consumption over the past 24 hrs this app has consumed 60% of it. That’s with it running in the background, not even using it actively for very long. This needs to be addressed ASAP and once it is, I’ll update my rating to 5 stars.

5 start app and customer service
As an SRNA I love this app. I had a CRNA initially pay for my app as well as 3 other students’ at a MOANA conference (thank you sir!).
The app just keeps getting better and better and is a top resource for me in clinical.
I recently had a glitch on my new iPhone and new iOS update that rendered me Block Buddy-less. The developers of block Buddy were QUICK to help me (I’m talking within the hour) and made things right for me. 5 stars!!!!
