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.

Works great - until you have to renew. As the 100ish comments concur, renewing is nigh impossible. You can pay (multiple times) but it keeps acting as if you haven't paid. The only way I can recommend this app is if you know you will only use this for less than one year. Anyone actually practicing in a healthcare field will eventually be disappointed.

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.
