I used to like this app a lot. I recently got a an iPad and started loading all my clinical references and I could not load anything into skyscape. I did some research and you can only use one device at a time. Every other resource on the planet allows for 2-3 active devices for a license. This is ridiculous! I have to log out of my phone and log into the app on my iPad if I want to use these resources and then log out of the iPad and then log into it on my phone. I'm not sure if these people understand their clientele. But, clinical professionals don't have time to log in and out of devices all the time we need to grab a device that s handy and get the information we need quickly. I wish I could give this app 0 stars. This is truly pitiful.

Great for nurses

I had to purchase this app for school and it is something I used frequently as a student. It is also helpful at work as I now work in intensive care. While I use it less often, it is still a great app.


Great App

In the Adverse reaction section, love the highlighted condition’s, informing you, that is a lot more prevalent than the others!
Cons: don’t have all the latest drugs..., even when I payed!!
