"What you offer allows those with lower literacy and numeracy to fairly easily understand concepts they can't comprehend when they read traditional textbooks. Aged care is a huge growth area in countries such as the U.S and Australia. We are desperate for any resources to enable us to educate assistant nurses. They are often people who speak English as a second language or who have little education. Traditional textbooks and nursing videos really aren't suitable. I spend a lot of time searching for anything that will bring the curriculum to life…Focus Apps, …are perfect for my students." –- Teacher Review

  • I'm an MD

    by PathMax

    These are good, ESP if you buy the in app, I bought the derm one and it was good, not comprehensive, but goof

  • Don't waste your time

    by cbasics

    App does not work from get go. None of the videos work, and they want 10.00 per section. Maybe should have tested app before releasing it. At least make it affordable.

  • Not a free app

    by tferris1999

    While the info might be useful, you can't see it without paying (preview videos only)....very misleading.

  • Deceptive

    by sycamore20

    There's nothing to recommend the designers of app set out to deceive customers by suggesting its free and it's not! My recommendation is to see what company or individual made this and make sure you don't purchase any apps from them in the future. I only gave one star because it forced me to choose something.

  • Advertisement Shameless

    by epauepedra

    Why offer this as a free app only to be an advertisement? Shameless piece of crap. I would give it a negative star if available.

  • Scam

    by BugzapperB

    Sure the app is free but you will be charged $10 for each video. The content of the videos is easily available on the internet for free.

  • Scam

    by alimirza

    The rating for this app is less than one star, zero zero zero It is a cheap shot scam The sole purpose of this app is to sell books The app is nothing but 6 videos, 15 second long, that tell you almost nothing about the subject matter It is a pity that Apple allows these people to waste people's TIME or MONEY, or BOTH
