    Common things like DKA have barely any information and if you can't spell a word and use voice to text it'll put the whole word in correctly and then tell you there's no information on your search. Will only pull up searches that are half way spelt. Full Review

    With the new update I lost my drug guide. Also, just an fyi for anyone interested in this app, it has mainly American drugs. I used this app mainly for the drug guide but will be deleting it now that it has stopped working. During nursing school it was also helpful for care planning as it has nursing diagnosis links to any disease you look up. Full Review

    When I updated the app I lost the actual drug guide for over a week. I contacted support and no one answered my questions. Very dissatisfied especially for the amount of money I spent, I wasn't able to use the guide when needed most. Full Review

    The resources are good, but how the app is set up is a little bit annoying. I wish you could open the app and have your last research on it, instead, if your phone shuts down you have to start over again. Full Review

    I really like this app and have been using it on my phone. However I put it on an older tablet and I cannot even sign in. It takes me to what I think is an old invalid login. I am running Android 4.2.2 on my older tablet. Full Review
