Can’t Access On Other Devices

1
Despite paying good money, you cannot access this book on other devices. You can get the same book on kindle for way less ($24), and you can access it on any device that can download kindle.

The material you allows us to view free does not give adequate information to entice me to purchase this product.

Purchase

1
I purchased this life time access, but unable to use it or sign in to use. I contacted them several times without success. They simply do not respond. I had to purchase another drug guide to use. I don't like this company, I'm really not typing all that has taken place. Keep your money and run...

Very useful app!

5
I was happy to find more high alert coverage and patient safety information in this app than in any other drug guide. Also, this app is integrated with 800+ built-in weight-based drug dosing calculators. All this makes my life easy. Highly recommended.

Has built in dosage calculations

5
App not only has built in calculators for proper dosages but also tons of color images.

Could use improvement

1
I buy this app every year. I’m not happy about this purchase. The drug information is all over the place. I enjoyed the picture, class, indication and generic drug info right at the beginning. It’s a waste of time to have to scroll drug info. Maybe if you could customize your display. Otherwise I’m not happy. I would not recommend this app, maybe use the previous year, until the creator fix this app.

Great app, but please enable landscape view

4
Thanks for producing a great app with a very easy to use design! A quick suggestion - please enable landscape view! I have an iPad with the Apple keyboard stand and not having the ability to view in landscape makes it quite inconvenient. Otherwise, this is a great app! Thank you!
