This was a great app until the last update. Despite paying the yearly fee, the program will not update. I cannot login with email and password. Even trying to reset password gives me an invalid email message. Company denies the issue and blames it on Apple and the user. Rather then help, they just suggested cancelling my subscription if I am not happy (after keeping the payment). This is very disappointing from a company that used to be highly regarded in the medical field, and one that I used as a physician for years. Addendum: deleting the app and redownloading allows updating content, but any updates require this to be done, unlike every other Apple app. There is also a bug in the app that you cannot create an account despite a button to create account. It also will not link to an account you set up via the internet either. The company's response is that it must be my fault.
This is one of the best medicine app for the resident I could recommend for all the intern and residents.
Very useful bibliography but was unable to find information on geographic range of US disease.
Good; however, way to expensive for what it is.
I would like to start off by saying that it is a wonderful app and a great resource for my first year of residency. My only gripe with it, is that since yesterday I have not been able to access the app because it keeps saying that it is “checking subscription”. I paid for the app two months ago. Once the issue is desocupes I will happily este this 5 stars
I am a novice in the field and was carrying around the Sanford book, then my preceptor introduced me to this app. It has been a life saver! I love the organization. Very simple, clear, and to the point. I love the citations linked within the text.
I’ve had the Sanford Guide book for several years, the last two years I decided to purchase through the App Store and everything was fine until a message appear while I was doing some research that says “Your subscription has expired” and I checked in my subscriptions and the invoice and it clearly says I have full access until December 2020, so this clearly a way to make you pay twice and I haven’t received any kind of help. The advices they give doesn’t work. I need you to fix this issue or give me my money back.
I use SG every single day. And I constantly reference it when going over patients and choosing therapies with my interns and residents. It is a resource that’s much needed with ID & even just FamMed or Internal Medicine.
I have been an enthusiastic user of your printed & digital publications since medical school. For decades I regularly purchased the handbooks, (& more recently, subscriptions) for my staff as needed, but times have changed. It is an unfortunate reflection of the metastasis of corporate greed, that this company, who’s existence is dependent on filling the need for immediate, reliable, clinical information; would have their central product self-destruct on the subscription expiration date, with no available access whatsoever. Your venerated handbooks never did that. We faithfully carried them them in our breast pockets until they fell apart. (Btw, most of my med/info app don’t do this. They just disclaim that newer data is available with update. We WILL always want the latest version because of its newer clinical information, and upgrade when convenient. ) What if, I were one day past expiration, in a situation (basement, plane, national park, jungle safari clinic) where there’s no reliable internet, needing to look up malaria or tuberculosis treatments, only to find you’ve “locked” my access for fun & profit! Aargh! Come on! Your Handbooks didn’t do that, and they weren’t cheap. Furthermore, I suspect your manufacturing, publishing, distributing and marketing costs were higher back then, compared to your fixed editorial costs. Please tell your profit-mongers to stop locking-down the app on its expiration date, and let access continue, before they find themselves on vacation, bitten by a Komodo dragon, needing to look up broad spectrum antibiotic coverage for a nasty polymicrobial animal bite using an app that’s frozen its data because they insisted on a subscription-timed paywall lock!
