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.

Ever since this app changed from IBM micromedex to merative micromedex it is like it is hiding on my phone. I can't find it anywhere, yet every time I search the play store for it, it says it's installed. It isn't in my app list, or my settings, nowhere. I have to open it via the play store. I've never has this issue before with any other app. It's quite annoying.

I just had to renew my subscription. I paid and then it told me to log in, I log in and it says I have to renew my subscription, I click continue and Google play pops up and says I already own this item, and then IBM says Error and exits the app... If I click on get help nothing ever loads. so I have no way of contacting these people. The app is awesome and I know it's probably just a bug, I used to have them rated 5 stars but they legit took my money and I have no way of contacting them for a refund so I hope they see this review. I will change my rating when they fix the app
