Ratings and Reviews
Very useful for what it is
This app will not be everything you need to make a correct diagnosis. However, it does what it says it does and I find it useful. As far as the price it is perhaps overpriced, due to the lack of information on Z codes (which does seem like an easy fix), etc. But keep in mind, full access to APA’s DSM-5 online, a complete and very useful tool, is over $500 for an individual 1 year subscription. You likely purchased the book version of the DSM-5 for over $100. Here, you are paying for quick access to criteria for the billable diagnoses. I found all the reviews I read accurate, so read them and decide whether or not the app is worth it for your purposes. If your needs have been identified as missing from the app, then it will be a disappointment.
I expected better
The app functions very well and is easy to use. I expected from the price for it to be very useful. But despite its easy function, an appalling lack of diagnosis limits its use. I keep having to use other apps to locate diagnostic criteria for psych ICD-10 codes. It is simply not complete. What it does have is helpful enough to make accurate diagnosis, but once you are done with common ones, and need a little help with less common, this often falls short. Bottom line? Functional but not worth it.
I was hoping for more
Unfortunately the app does not have everything that is provided in the book. Very disappointing
