Great app but... Great app with a lot of excellent resources for an emt like me but a lot requires the paid version. I got it mainly for the pill identifier but it leaves a lot to be desired. That function needs some improvements. For shapeIt has like a 7 sided pill option but not more common ones likes a rectangle with rounded edges. Tried it out on pills around the house and didn't get matches on most of them for I suspect stupid simple reasons. I am going to keep it but I'd like to see more Prehospital friendly features.
Comprehensive Companion I've been using Epocrates since my nursing school days, specifically for the drug information. However, now that I am in my Family Nurse Practitioner program I am finding and utilizing all the in-app features. I am even going to pay for the full version starting next semester because I can't imagine how much more help this app will be in my studies and career. Highly, highly, highly recommended this app to anyone in the health field... especially nurses!
Annoying Notifications Notifications keep popping up without any way of disabling it. The old simple version was better. I just want to look up drug information like most other users. Fix this!
Annoying notifications! I simply want use it to look up drugs, I don't need all the notifications and news feed that I'm not interested or don't care, or are unrelated to my practice and specialty!
Finally, decided to dump it aftr prolonged several months struggle to keep on using wth hope developrs will understand our needs Used to function faster on Palm device. Forces you to read updates the editor considers valuable -very poor selection. There are way better other authentic options to read updates. Notifications force their way ahead of drug reference. Too many clicks.Needs internet connection. Diseases are written very poorly frm a POC perspective. Dose calculator is confusing. If you have time on your side, seeing 4-5patients a day, use it. An over ambitious miserable failure of an app. I am closer to dumping it everyday.
Amazing Great features. Accurate information. Easy to use. I use the dosing and drug interaction all the time. Just discovered the pill ID and provider directory, amazing!
