Do not upgrade, as if you have a choice. Will constantly ask for password and then not load. What once was very good has become a joke. Sad to see it go, but it has become worthless. Decided to try again. It worked! And also has been organized as to my profession's needs. Will see how stable the app is. But for the nonce, looking good.

Obligatory Job Description: Paramedic. Finding apps to use in the field that give me instant results for med interactions is literally vital. Epocrates was my favorite! However, for almost 2 months, the app opens, freezes on the home page, and then I have to force close it. What was once my favorite work app is now a blob on my homescreen. Fix the issue and it's 5 stars from me!

As an NP, I havr used this app for nearly 4 years. 5 stars on content! I have appreciated how up to date the info has been. HOWEVER, following my most recent renewal there are DAILY updates and syncing that take anywhere between 30 min to, currently, an hour and still waiting. Very frustrating. I have been delayed in caring for my patients every single day. If this does not change, I will cancel and find something else.
