Ratings and Reviews
I used to love this app (and other Micromedex apps) but now it is requiring I enter the password every single time I open the app. And the passwords aren’t self set and are always a weird combo of letters and numbers that I won’t possibly be able to memorize. This is paid for by my employer and it was annoying enough when my password randomly would expire but now, it’s rendering this app nearly useless. In the ED... I don’t have time to look up passwords on the computer to look up a drug or IV compatibility. This needs fixed.
Neee an update with the new iOS
This app has been my go to app so far along with Lexicomp. A major flaw with this app is that they haven’t updated the app with the new iOS and the new iPhone X compatibility. It is really annoying to be stuck at the older app. The developers need to update the app and make it more compatible and viewer friendly. I have a paid version for this app and I believe I am not asking for too much.
Are used to love to use this with my medical students and residents because it had no commercial sponsorship unlike the other products such as epocrates. Now it is user unfriendly, awkward and difficult to get medical students and residents to use. Not sure what happened but most certainly needs to be re-thought.
