Happy Searching. I have been using WebMD for years. I like how easy they make it to look things up. For example: If you find a pill on the floor, and you don't know if it is yours or your roommate's, all you have to do is run a search on WebMD, and it will tell you what the name of the pill is. Now you know if it is yours or not. There is a lot more to WebMD then what I wrote, check it out for yourself. I am sure you will find what you are looking for. Happy Searching...
Good but could be better It allows me to track the names of my meds but not much else. Would be better if I could track dosages and frequency. ALSO, I would like a place to track immunizations. Today I went to my doctor and was asked, when was my last tetanus shot. I don't know. They are good for 10 years and it is hard to remember that time frame when you are 60. I know I've had one but was it within the last 10 years or was it 15 years ago......
Latest update downhill I loved the webmd app before this latest update. Although it had a bug that i couldn't removd a prescription off my list (it kept coming back). Now when i click on the app it wants me to log in, and isn't asking for my 4 digit pin anymore, nor is it giving me access to my list of prescriptions i had listed.
I thought it was a useful app Until I learned that everything I type, every medical condition or question, when researching medication, YOU ACTUALLY SHARE WHATEVER INFORMATION THAT INFO WITH OTHER SOURCES. That would explain the calls/emails I get regarding my diabetes, I DON'T HAVE DIABETES. I looked it up in support of my grandmother. That's just to name one. This app was even discussed on Good Morning America. I can't believe you can sell/share what searches I've done.
it's easier to use the website Since the new update with "upgrades" and fixes, you can't change the age, gender, or location of the person you're looking up symptoms for. Not very useful for families or people with significant others. Also, why do they need camera access? They don't have the pill identifier anymore, so camera access is just creepy.
App couldn't find info for basic symptoms, but could for obscure ones App was unable to give possible causes for something as simple as "diarrhea," stating that no possible causes could be found, yet something as obscure as "fear of air" as a symptom had an immediate result. I found this app to be completely useless. The actual WebMD website had 44 possible causes for diarrhea, btw. I'm not going to waste my time with this app again. Uninstalling.
