Quality medical information available offline
It's great to have all of this information immediately available regardless of where I am. Even when I'm in the woods and out of cell service I can still get the information I need.
Very straightforward and easy to use. It's great to have the knowledge of the entire Merck Manual in the palm of my hand, regardless of a wifi connection. The educational videos are very interactive and excellent quality! I recommend this app to anyone who wants their medical info on the go.
What you need to know about this app
This app provides the same info as the trusty Merck Manual my family relied on since I can remember (it's still on the bookshelf BTW). Truly great to see this new app in the app store.
- Free (What?? last time I checked it was like $20)
- No Ads (not a "lite" version either, the real deal)
- It's all downloaded to your phone (no wifi or phone signal needed - and thats when you likely need it the most)
Also, downloaded the Pro version, its free as well and gives you the next level info to be a real know it all.
