Subscription for the year is more expensive than a physical copy of the book forever. Crazy!

The app gets content updates during the subscription period, where a hard cover book does not. The app is more convenient to carry around and have the information at your finger tips. We often have sales so I would suggest contacting support@skyscape.com to ask about discounts.

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.
