Great app for continuing education(CEUs). There is one fix that is needed ASAP for the continuing education section: when a course is completed and evaluation done there is only a link to the activity tracker, but no way to get back to either the main home page or to education section. Please add a button/link to allow seamless transition with this. Also, add an option to change text size within the app for the visually impaired. Thanks! 👍

The ads in this app make it completely useless! They take up the complete screen and I can't view the information. There is no way to close the ad as well. I was using this a lot until these ads appeared. If this is not fixed I will look elsewhere. I understand ads bring in needed revenue, but the execution of the ads is horrible. Fix the ads and it is 5/5, otherwise it's a zero.

I emailed MedScape about MedScape being nonfunctional. I even sent a screenshot. It was about at the bottom of the screen I get a network error has occurred message where I assume the ad should be. This error limits my ability to access most of your app. I still get notifications about news which I can read with an ad at the bottom. I did not get a thank you or a status update on how you are fixing this issue. Update - They finally fixed the problem but still no thank you or acknowledgement.
