Excellent app. The most useful part is that it explains why the trial was done, what the results meant, what was affected in the guideline and what the criticisms were. The data presentation were nicely displayed. The journals can be sorted by time of publish and it gave me a time sense of how the evidence emerged. These are the pearls that are not found by simply downloading the journal article. Yes, it is spoonfeeding. But you have to be spoonfed for some time before your horizons are widened enough to add your own interpretation. Not all journal articles were included, but no database is perfect. The inclusion has been impressive. Please keep up the good work.
I had used this app initially and I think it's great for students initially. The concept, layout and explanations are great when you are in a pinch for time. This of course is no substitute for critically appraising the literature yourself. My biggest feedback for this is that THIS APP DOES NOT GET UPDATED ENOUGH. In the oncology section, there are no new trials since 2015. Since then there have been several new treatments and trials that have changed practice in oncology.
Lacking Nephrology updates It's a great attempt. Key Nephrology trials are missing. No currency in this subspec area. E.g. Hemodiafiltration trials missing. Peritoneal Dialysis adequacy studies missing. RENAL trial missing. Recent ELAIN and AKIKI trials missing. Paucity of transplant literature. These can be improved. Please note. Thanks for doing this.
Missing some studies that are on the website, e.g. the CESAR trial, which is online but not in app :( Edit: I'd love an option to show all articles, even if they are in draft.
Lacking oncology trials This is a very useful and easy to use app. I just wish there were more uptodate trials in oncology
Excellent app A great app when preparing for medical exams or interviews. Concise summary of the most pertinent points of landmark trials.
