  • I've written reviews and support emails with nothing

    By Alaskastephanie
    I can't open my macbook app because it loops with a request to update the app. Even though I've updated my computer, the app, and deleted and reinstalled the app several times it still will not allow me in. I have had no developer response regardless of writing reviews and several emails to get their attention. I would very much like my money back or have the developers respond to me. More importantly, having read other reviews that seem to have gone unanswered, please fix the problem now.
  • Very frustrating - Don't waste your time or money

    By Ashlynlovesthis
    I bought this app to use during my RN program. After paying for the annual subscription, I could not use the app because it kept prompting me to update the app. I would follow the link to the app store, no update. I decided to delete the app and reinstall it on my computer. BIG mistake. Now my subscription is removed completely and the "try before you buy" prompt is showing. I give up.
  • Great app and content!

    the book was recommneded for my class, wasnt a requirement. Ended up subscrinbing for a year to the drug guide as the class began to require medication look ups. It is alot easy to use and gives all necessary info in one location instead of having to do multiple web searches. with the yearly subscription will be able to get up to date inforamtion instead of having an outdated book.
  • Doesn’t work on new phone

    By Lauraa139
    Very disappointed my old phone broke and I got a brand new iPhone. I must pay for the app again. Not gonna happen. I don’t understand how a $40 purchase disappeared in my account. Good way to lose a customer.

  • Once again fabulous app!

    By Dr Shef
    For last 7 years I am purchasing medical apps from Skyscape and everytime they come up with something new! This time they have made this Drug app available for Mac. It is so convenient to use. When I am at my clinic I can use on phone. And when I am at my home, I can use it on my MacBook. It is so convenient!!
  • Difficult to use

    By jmd-52
    Very difficult to use on the iPad. Doesn’t have landscape view so have to flip iPad to see homepage. Frustrating!
  • Can’t Access On Other Devices

    By alavertu01
    Despite paying good money, you cannot access this book on other devices. You can get the same book on kindle for way less ($24), and you can access it on any device that can download kindle.
