  • Not working at all

    By sherrimom27
    App is not working at all since I upgraded my iPhone iOS. It continues to say it is loading, but it never does and remains grayed out so I cannot use it. This is a very expensive app for this to be happening. Please fix it or refund my money! In addition, when I tried to contact your support it won’t allow it!! It is finally loading on my iPhone, but not my iPad. However, on my iPhone it keeps saying reference error every time I click on the drug!! I have always used this app a lot and this is very frustrating!!!!!!
  • This app has been broken for months!

    By NateTheRN
    Ive used this app for years, but it has been broken now for months with no update from developer. It needs to be updated to run on the most recent version of iOS. Ive cancelled my subscription until its fixed.
  • Frustrated

    By Blondy09
    I’ve had this app for a couple years and loved it! Here is why only 1 star - they haven’t made it compatible with iPhones newest update and my app no longer works!!! I messaged and they gave me a free year but it isn’t working still. I’m now searching for a new app because of this. Frustrated!!!
  • Doesn’t work anymore

    By RodQ20181
    This app was really good at the beginning when I first bought it, after a month did not work anymore! I called technical support and they said that there wasn’t estimated time for the app to be fixed. I really need the app! Now I spent my money for nothing! So disappointing....

  • Dissatisfied

    By Thickums580
    I paid $24.99 for a 1 year subscription to this app and it hasn’t worked in over a month!!! I canceled my renewal! No specific timeline on when the issue will be fixed, except the developers are aware.
  • Not working!

    By Lizcjo
    I’m not sure what is happening, but this app is useless. I downloaded it to my iPad and it keeps trying to update but then gets stuck in the spinning disk and the grey screen. I want a refund or someone to fix this problem. I am in nursing school and I needed this app now I ha e to down load another app. I am not happy.
  • Not Working

    By PJKnowsBest
    After the last Apple OS update the drug guide app just stopped working. Nothing but an error message when you try to open drugs, search or view. I emailed them since I paid $24.99 for something that isn’t working. They said it was a development problem and would let their IT technicians know. I’m a nursing student and this app is important. Very disappointed!
