Ratings and Reviews
First off, the app makes it a hassle to use it at all (“restore purchase” issues for the subscription you have to pay for to use the app at all.) Once that problem is solved, however, it still doesn’t work. I’ve reinstalled multiple times and it’s stuck only showing me the info for the last drug I successfully looked up, not the one I’m currently searching. So, it’s useless. Too bad; it used to be a good resource.
This *used* to be amazing
I began using this app years ago. When it was free. Well, times change and they began charging for it. Think I paid less than $2.00 for what was portrayed as a year’s subscription to this app. With so many updates to medicines, two bucks is still a great deal for as much as I use this app! But then things went south. The app started to crash constantly. Pretty soon it just quit opening, period. Shame. Was a great app.
Good for tox
The interface could you some work, but this is the best resource I have found for toxicology information in the emergency room. I had to delete and re-download the app after updating to iOS 12.
