What's New in Version 188.8.131.522
Minor bug fixes
Good but TOO EXPENSIVE
This app works as you would expect it to work, without bugs and glitches and with an easy interface and a little better detail than the physical Tarascon Pharmacopoea book.
The big problem is the cost. Whereas the book is published annually and the pocket edition costs around $15 and can be used forever, this app costs more than $40 but for that fee, you only get one year of use. And after that year, the app is locked and you don't even have the privilege of using the older data.
So, help me understand....There is no printing, no distribution, no shelf space, none of the overhead going into producing a physical book. Just the software. And yet it costs way more? I'm thinking Tarascon will need to make pricing more reasonable or they will lose market to the competition.
Cannot access once subscription ends
The app is nice while it's functioning. However, unlike the book there is no convenient way to view related drugs or drug families, which I really used a lot with the paper version.
In addition to this lack of functionality, you get saddled with a subscription fee. Yes you get updates, but once your sub is done, you get completely locked out. It doesn't just stop updating. I suppose they're afraid someone will sue because their version of the app was out of date. On the other hand, the vast majority of what I'm looking for doesn't change.
Would not recommend. Will go back to buying the book.
Too expensive, update mandatory
App itself is good and it is markedly too expensive
App=$40 per year
Problem also that the app will lock up on you when the year is up which is total balogney. I paid for it in 2014 and like the book should be able to keep all the data up to my expiration date. I do not care if I don't get the updates. So I buy one book it lasts me 2 or 3 yrs for 99% of what I do. Not renewing anymore
