**revised** Developer published a fix to the update screen default. Everything is back up to speed and no more waiting for drug info if there is slow or no WiFi access. Thank you! The newest version of the app defaults to the update screen. I can’t tell you how much I HATE this. If there is a poor signal or no WiFi access in a building, it is not possible to navigate away from the update page until the device has failed to make a connection. How embarrassing when a physician stops me in the hallway or calls and I can’t look up the information of concern. It just makes an angry physician who isn’t interested in waiting while I stare at my unresponsive screen. If I could keep the drug data in my head for instant recall, I wouldn’t need Lexicomp in my lab coat pocket at all times. Please change this!
Update: The latest update fixed my 2 problems I wish this new update didn’t automatically check for updates when you open the app. I work in a place that doesn’t get reception or WiFi so I’m stuck on that update page for at least a minute until it fails to connect. I can’t navigate away from that update page when I don’t have reception. Also when you search for a drug I wish it would show the drugs that begin with the letters you typed first. For example, if I search for a drug that begins with H, show the H drugs first. Don’t show me every single drug that has the letter H in it.
Home screen much more user friendly. Search results much better organized
Update is awful. Difficult to use. Pediatric dosing missing (for example cefdinir).
Agree with most recent review regarding annoyance of app automatically checking for updates every time I open it. Also, the search function is now a filter function in Lexi-Drugs, which is useless and slows me down when trying to pull up individual medications. The update is great otherwise, but these two issues are significant.
Like other recent reviewers, I am annoyed the app goes to ‘updates’ whenever. The app is opened. The vast majority of the time when I open the app I looking up information, not updating. And most of the time that I am looking up information, I am on my cell service which I am not going to use to update my app. I will do so when I am on my home WiFi.
Not happy with new update. App defaults to update page instead of home page. Then you have to 'click' four times just to get to the search field. THEN if you search using only the first few letters of a drug name, the search results pulls in ANY drug name that contains those letters, even if those letters are in the middle of the drug name. Why doesn't the drug names that begin with those letters appear at the top of the list?
I LOVE it! Much faster and MUCH less crowded! My sometimes tired eyes would struggle before. It still needs some love here and but I like it so far. Long awaited for sure! Can’t wait to see where it goes next release. 👍🏼
Glad they are bringing the Lexi-Comp app up to the same excellent standards as their UpToDate app. Also...SPLIT-SCREEN ability with the iPad pro!!! 👍👍👍
So disappointed when I went to renew my subscription and realized 5 minute clinical consult is no longer apart of this package. Will most likely not renew due to this change.
