A way to 'warm up' to DSM-V & ICD10
I went ahead and hit the "Buy" button for the DSM-V iPhone app and I'm actually enjoying thumbing through it. OK, "enjoy" might be an overstatement, but the app is well laid out and engaging as a way to explore. You can read by categories of diagnoses down the left column, or search easily. It has the ICD9 and ICD10 codes for each and lists diagnostic criteria. The app really is a lot better organized and 'approachable' than the print edition.
It's expensive for an app but will probably get more use than my bound edition. Of course what it lacks is a complete ICD10 listing independent of the DSM-sanctioned nomenclature, but for everyday use (and a comfortable way to 'warm up' to DSM-V and ICD10) it may be worth it for many.
This is basically a really good replacement for the pocket DSM-5, but not for the entire text. It would be nice to add differential diagnosis, but otherwise a very handy tool. I think the search function is especially useful rather than thumbing through a text.
Codes not currently up to date
While I like the Ap for searching diagnostic criteria, the diagnostic codes are not currently up to date. Do not use the codes from this Ap until you have confirmed the coded are correct with the APA website.
