This is a welcome addition to the iPhone family of useful applications for the healthcare practitioner. Keep up the great work!
I've had this app on EVERY Palm I've owned over the last six years. Now that I can have it on my Touch, one more reason to drop the Palm completely!
Love it love it love it!
So helpful and easy to use. Would help if within the definitions there were cross links to eponyms that are part of the definition - would be a time saver. Still well worth $1.99!
