    Torture! Slide bar is horrible!
  • Keeps closing

    This could be a very useful app, but when I search meds and click on the link, the app closes. It's random, sometimes I can read about a medication, such as I just searched and read about lamotrigine, but when I searched and clicked on carbamazepine, it shutdown. At this point I can't recommend it, if they fix the bugs, we will see.....
  • Recent update significantly limits the functionality

    This update has made the slide bar feature at the bottom non-functional which reduces the ease of use of this app. Also the alphabetical look up feature does not work correctly now. If you want to select "R" for example you have to tap a letter 4-5 letters earlier in the alphabet. I really hope this gets resolved as this is negatively affecting productivity of my work.

  • Buggy

    This app has been rendered useless with this new update. However, it has the potential to be a great application if all the bugs are fixed.
  • App crashes too much

    The app would be great if it didn't crash so much. This is very frustrating. Please fix, if not I would suggest don't buy. Just get the book
  • Clunky interface and crashes all the time

    This app is terrible! If I'm going to pay this much, the app should have a user friendly interface and it shouldn't crash. Really disappointed. Do NOT buy this app, you'll regret it. I hope they update it soon; if the update is better, I'll update my review to reflect the improvement
  • Not Very Nimble

    The information with in the app is great- it's just like the book, however the search tool is difficult to use- you don't always get the drug you're looking for and it sometimes kicks you out of the app as soon as you get find it. It's too clumsy to use while in a session with a patient. I find I have to use Epocrates if I need to look something up fast. Hoping it will get better with updates.
  • Great info!

    Very useful clinically. Well organized with a nice visual of fabric that helps to sort out the information. If you're really using a lot of psych drugs, this is worth $79.
  • Not good for iPhone 6 plus

    The application doesn't cover the whole screen, the lower 30% is all white and the interface has the same problems of the former version.
