What's New in Version 2.0
Merck Manual Professional App (Version 2.0), completely redesigned with many new features and enhancements.
Update has taken a step back to what was a great app
This app was a go to on rounds- easy to look up information on the go. With the new updated version it seems they have just ported the online website into a very bad attempt at an app. Not very streamlined/the bulleted tabs actually deter away from being able to quickly get a quick glance of the information and make it more cumbersome to navigate- requiring more attention to the app than your surroundings.
The search button does not work- causes the app to crash immediately- which basically makes the whole app pointless because going through systems and than all the tabs to find the disease information you want is a waste of time- This def needs to be looked into. The point of being able to use a great manual like Merck on the phone is too have all the trusted information of the book available easily and quickly on call. Hopefully, the developers pushed this version and will look into fixing up future versions- although with the previous versions the developers were very very slow with updates if any- so let's see what they are able to fix.
Bottom line: use the web interface on Your phone if you need a better searchable index or as of now stick with your pocket reference guides.
A must have for health students and professionals
The latest optimization makes all this valuable information look wonderful. Most of the info can be checked without internet connection. Easy navigation, very well organized subjects and a search option to precisely find what you are looking for. Definitely worth having it for reliable reference.
App in very negative direction
This app WAS a 5 star. I really miss the alphabetized list I could just quickly jump to what i wanted. Sifting down through long menus is ridiculous, especially as not everything fits it a simple specific category. The search is about the only way to find something quickly now, however, sometimes it's hard to remember the exact spelling of those rare exotically named conditions. This really should have been evaluated by healthcare professionals before messing up a once great and useful app. I would no longer recommend anyone spend money on this app.
