Good visual and explanations. Plus excellent customer service too! My go-to when it comes to TCM info.
I have been using this apps since the old version started. With lots of technical issue finally got pro version. Of course I had to pay for that instead of fixing their issue. I found that when I needed the most for my test & exam. My password doesn’t work. When I contacted via email. Their response, a support representative will review and will send personal response with in 2 working days. This is a digital age but they seem to be in snail pace when solving problem. This is how they respond with their customers!
The app did not automatically upgrade to the standard version when I purchased it. This was inconvenient because I had planned on using it later that day and the next. After emailing the customer service team, I heard back from them 2 - 3 days later. They had me fill out a form to ‘restore’ the service, but once I did that, it worked by later that day. It’s a great app though. Am glad I purchased it. So if you have the time and don’t mind the hassle this might potentially cause you, then it’s likely worth it.
Been in practice for 13 years. This app is definitely a must for new and even seasoned practitioners. Great customer service. Updates really helped make this app work very well. Most complete acupuncture guide out there.
Once they updated their app, myself and many colleagues have been unable to access the new version, despite repeated communication and outreach via email, that often go unanswered. You spend a lot on this app and then aren’t able to access it anymore.
As an acupuncture student on the go this app is imperative for learning. The videos are a great review for point location.
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.
