Paid for full lifetime purchase and app is almost completely ususable. Selecting a drug will take you to a different drug's page, seemingly at random. Cannot even report errors/ feedback without installing another app. Such a waste of time and money. DO NOT BUY.

Decent interface, and a good deal for a one time purchase with updates, but I'm constantly surprised at some fairly common meds used in hospitals that are missing from their catalogue.
