I've been using Epocrates for many years now. I am for the Epocrates Plus, in the last month I open the program on my phone which is compatible. It is frozen , and does not work. Removed the app several times and re-downloaded it. I then went to the Play store to see that there's several other people that are complaining about this issue. If this is not taking care of then I will definitely ask for a refund and I will let all my colleagues know. Very frustrating!!!! Please fix

For about 2 weeks now, my Epocrates App on my phone locks up after a couple of uses. Then I have to uninstall and the reinstall. Works a couple of times and the same thing happens. I notice on GooglePlay that there are 2 identical Apps that both download when you install. Is this part of the problem? Very frustrating to be in the middle of a patient visit and not get the info. you need. Please fix this!

Great app prior to November or so; my first line reference for medications when working as a paramedic or teaching in the classroom, and I used to recommend it to everyone. However, for the last couple of months, it's frozen on the home screen and has had to be force closed; I haven't actually been able to look anything up since then, and will be deleting the app if the issue isn't resolved shortly. Can't currently recommend.
