I have been subscribed to the old micromedex for almost 3 years. And suddenly today the app says it has been removed and replaced with this new app which required a password. I entered my old password and it didnt work. What the hell?

I used to love this app. It was my go to app for drug information on the fly. And if I could get the damn thing to work again it might still be. But I can't get it to function so it isn't. Keep getting infuriating messages about not being able to download updates etc. Considering the fact that I don't have any issues with other apps/downloads and the like I can only conclude that the problem is on the apps end. I am so frustrated with this. Please fix it.

Same issue everyone else seems to be having: when I go to open the app I receive the message "Unable to download content please check your device." I have restarted the app and my phone, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the app with no success. Waste of space on my phone. Micromedex's other apps work just fine.
