I started using the free version of this app during acupuncture school (‘09) and found it to be so helpful that I bought the paid version. It’s a great resource that I go to regularly. The updates keep improving the value of the app too. I did have an issue when I transferred from an Android platform to iPhone and the seller was quick to respond and walked me through the process. I highly recommend this app!
I don't know how anyone could ever get through TCM school without this app. I use it daily to look up obscure points, double check myself, and now study for boards. It is worth way more than what they charge for it!
How can I adjust the font size.
This is by far the most thorough and best app out there if you're looking for a pocket reference guide for all you covered in acupuncture school. Points, indications, contras, herbs and formulas (for CA or NCCAOM), tongue and pulse, it's all here. One especially great feature is if you want to see the ingredients in any formula you click on the herbs and it shows a pic and full information about that herb. Also, if you want to edit or add something in a field you have that option as well.
Perfect to study Chinese medicine herbs. Just wrote a long review but Apple automatically deleted it permanently without giving me the option to save it after telling me the user name was taken.
It has everything
Are you a TCM student who doesn’t know what resources to invest in? Choose this! TCM Clinic Aid is indispensable. It’s FULL of information; it’s well-organized; it’s not a million dollars! I use this all the time. I used to check all the information in CAM, ACT and Deadman, but realized I didn’t need to keep doing that because the information is dead on. I had a question and emailed the tech support and they responded right away (pointing out nicely it was my error not theirs :) So this is all to say, if you are thinking about getting this app you probably should. Also, I added the quizzes recently and I LOVE them. It’s so helpful with remembering point location and herb indications. Having the quizzes at my disposal whenever also means I’m studying more.
A superior replacement for a hundred pounds of books. I use this in my practice as my go-to reference, always in my pocket. Herbs within formulas are color-coded for temperature, which is hugely helpful. The in-app purchases are a bargain. My #1 app for making my life easier.
This is a great mobile app but the updates or potential to buy them is long overdue. The herbs and formulas are unorganized, outdated, and more. I am willing to pay to have a major update especially how helpful and useful this took is while I am in school. Thank you
