I routinely use this app with other Chinese medicine apps. This app is the most expensive app and also is the one that gives me grief every time I open it as it always asks me to login. Problems that this causes: - can’t access the app I paid for when I don’t have signal - slows down accessing information - doesn’t leave you in the last place you were looking When can you fix this, this has been going on for over a year...
I purchased this app after giving away my hard copy book to my acupuncturist. I quickly realized that I missed my book and decided to try out the app. I am so happy I did because it is so much more convenient to use and access information compared to the book. You will not find any more complete resource on acupuncture out there in terms of content and information. MOA is truly the holy grail on acupuncture. I also had quick support help from a log in issue I had for accessing the book online, which was fixed within a day. Great app, and great support! Would recommend for every professional acupuncturist and student of acupuncture.
As an acupuncturist, this book was the “Bible” back when I was in school and studying for the board exams. I am so happy to see this book is now an electronic version for your phone, tablet and computer. I love the videos too as you can see the placement & position of the needle on an actual person. Highly recommend!
I used around $35( I can’t remember the exact amount but it’s around this price) to buy this app, then I changed my iphone, I used the same account to log in, they asked me to buy again!!! Crazy.
After updating app access is not possible. Keeps saying sorry unable to connect you. Control your internet, which works perfectly well except for your acupuncture app. First version was much better. How can I solve this? Thank you Best, AC
I bought the $ 25.99 promotion, but I can open just the Lung video. I don’t have access to the others meridians.
I use this app almost everyday I am in my clinic. It is easy to use and navigate and I’ve never had any trouble with it being glitchy. It makes my SOAP notes more precise and complete and I find that it keeps things fresh because it’s so easy to double check my memory. Thank you!!!
Just downloaded and upgraded this app and when I logged back on it did not give me the upgrade but still charged me $48.99!
I’m a licensed acupuncturist- I use this app in my clinic a lot! I have shelves full of acupuncture books ( including this Manual of Acupuncture) but using the app is so much quicker. Having the videos for each point too is helpful at times. I recommend to any and all acupuncture students or professionals.
This app is a must for every acupuncture student. Don’t know how I would have survived without it. The quizzes helped me review points for the boards... and I still use it daily in my clinical practice.
