iOS App Reviews

  • Excellent app!

    By Dis satisfied
    I use this app so much in my work! It is user-friendly and helps me find quickly and easily the info I need on meds for their usage, dosing, side effects, and interactions with other meds. The black box warning alert is to special dangers, which is also so helpful. Thanks for all your work to keep this an excellent resource for us.
  • Pour search abilities

    By Nursefire
    Over all a decent app. However, you cannot search brand names. If you don’t know the generic name of Ned you cannot use this app unless you go to the web and search the brand to find generic

  • Useful

    By Tylercst
    I find this app very useful, saying that there are drugs that are not found on the app. Otherwise very useful.
  • Free app for what

    By honoluluhottie
    I look up one drug, albuterol, and it already asks for payment. Why offer a free app for drug info....but none of the info is free???
  • Beware of unreasonable fee

    By Elizmimi
    I used to like this app. However, 2 years ago when I no longer need the app and deleted, they still charged me $24 every year for automatic update. The problem is I already deleted the app long time ago. I tried to contact them through paypal but they never answer.
  • Not that helpful

    By AmazinGracee
    Only lets you look up drugs and gives you no description unless you upgrade. You might as well just google it
  • Overall helpful

    By Sami459
    Overall this is a helpful and convenient app; however there are some meds that don't have full info available.
