For last 7 years I am purchasing medical apps from Skyscape and everytime they come up with something new! This time they have made this Drug app available for Mac. It is so convenient to use. When I am at my clinic I can use on phone. And when I am at my home, I can use it on my MacBook. It is so convenient!!
Thanks for bringing the app to the mac!!
Availability of this drug guide on Mac App store is appreciated. I can use it on Mac as well as smart phone.
Very difficult to use on the iPad. Doesn’t have landscape view so have to flip iPad to see homepage. Frustrating!
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.
Very easy to use app with a lot of information available on drugs. Highly recommended!
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...
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.
App not only has built in calculators for proper dosages but also tons of color images.
