Customer Reviews

  • Excellent for Nurses

    by Days2003

    I use this app multiple times a day at work. Perfect for busy nurses not wanting to carry around a heavy book. Only a few meds I've come across not in here.

  • It's back to perfection

    by Tug less

    When will this be fixed? FINALLY !! It is back to its original perfection.

  • A little competition...

    by Andrea D CA

    So, this app is the drug guide book in electronic form. However, buy this app from unbound and you get the same thing, plus online access. As in, on a computer. Wish I had known that before buying this app. Also wish I had known about Epocrates, which is free. Don't get me wrong, this is a good app. There's just other options out there.

  • Love it!

    by krazykenny06

    So much easier than flipping thru the drug book hunting a certain medication. Downfall is the price, but it's the same price as the book :) so either way it works great!

  • Buy this app!!!

    by Dewt9

    Just like having the original book in my hands. Well worth the cost.

  • Great for this nursing student

    by Hawking2010aardvark

    It has the same info and page format as the actual book with a quick and easy index. I love having all the info from Davis' Drug Guide on my iPhone. It's a great help in clinical or when studying.

  • Nursing student

    by Surffishinggirl

    Awesome app! No problems with freezing up. Well designed interface. Accurate as well as easy to navigate. I use it in lectures, labs, and clinicals.

  • Love this app

    by lvmichelle76

    I purchase this app because one of my fellow nursing students had it and because it was less expensive. I LOVE the app and find it very useful, especially in the clinical setting, because I just type in the drug name and I get all the information I need for the drug including the important nursing implications aspects. Unlike the free app of the top 50-100 of Davis's drug guide, this app contains all the medications I've looked for. This is a great product for nursing students.

  • Great app!

    by Chigtansadae

    Made clinicals doable. Love the bookmark function and the search is super fast. Way Better than clunking through the book.

  • It's great

    by Mono22chrome

    I needed this to make drug cards for my cliicals, the interface is great and simple. It's very easy to navigate. Great app!

  • Better than Davis's Drug Guide By Unbound Medicine, Inc.

    by Erin Wetzel

    I was using Davis's Drug guide for years and was mostly satisfied. I decided to try another drug book and I chose this one. It is way better!! This drug guide gives a much more comprehensive explaination of each medication. Also, this app lists herbal products and almost every vitamin under the sun.

  • So far so go

    by BRL21680

    I still think 49.99 is expensive but it has all the information I need for clinicals

  • I want a refund!

    by PrysReturn

    This was a GREAT app until the update and now it doesn't work. This was an EXPENSIVE app! Either fix it or refund my money!

  • Do NOT WASTE your $

    by Goodaic

    The application is a joke! It does not work on brand new iPads- so if you are looking for a good nursing drug guide focused on nursing. RUN AWAY from this thieve! I want my money back- or my lawyer will be calling you. I do not want to sue you but...you this application has cost me time, money, and emotional hardship. Fix it or get served.

  • Stop working

    by mowalton

    Nice app until the ios6 update when it became frozen. Is this going to be fixed. I paid for this app. Am I going to be reimbursed if it is not fixed?

  • Froze

    by Brimstef

    Same problem here. It worked until the last update (october 2012) and now it is stuck/hung. My clinicals are tomorrow.

  • Quit working...GRRRR!!!

    by EricSRN

    It quit working and i have clinicals tomorrow. Great! Worked perfect last semester, but the Oct 23rd update killed it. Not happy about this, not one bit.

  • Disappointed.

    by App freezes up

    I really like this app for it's features. However, it continually freezes up. Hate I paid so much for it and when i need to use it, it doesn't work properly.

  • :(

    by penz5

    Would not have payed 38 dollars if I knew it did not include all drugs, paper version includes more drugs.
