Nursing Drug Handbook App Reviews

  • Sham subscription and app

    By Nightingale1966
    I purchased the subscription and it won’t recognize my subscription even though I can see it on my Apple ID. I sent an email for help with app and they want a scratch off code and won’t respond until I send. Wanted money.
  • Satisfied

    By GBB_18
    Able to use this app on the day to day basis to help reference different drugs! I don’t have to lug around the heavy drug formulary. The only down side is that you don’t know which drugs are added to the drug formulary when updated! It would be nice if we could see what new drugs are being added to the formulary. Overall very satisfied with the app.
  • Angry

    By You and Me and us
    Im so angry. I just purchased the app because I had the book and I was like it’d be great to have the compatible software for clinical. It stole my money! Didn’t give me a chance to even sign up and just charged me. Now I can’t even access it without having it ask me to pay again.
  • UPDATE to “DO NOT PURCHASE (YET)” (8/2018)

    By -hicketre2006-
    It appears that a recent update has made this app usable once more. To be fair to the developers: this wasn’t an on/off again issue. This app went from great to crap, and back to great only once. However that was a period that had lasted months. If you’d like to purchase, I would say go for it. As with anything, proceed at your own risk. Unfortunately this app will have to now prove itself to the users that it can stay up and running now. Will change to 5 stars if it proves itself to be reliable. Original Review Below (4/2018): ********************************* “As others have been saying recently, this app has not worked in weeks. When it IS functional, it works great, but this app has not worked at all for anyone recently. Unable to access even the most basic functions. I also paid the premium subscription and have been unable to use this product. This is pure theft and misleading to the customer. If left unfixed I will be reporting this developer to Apple for this specific reason. That said, when the app works, it’s great. You can look up any information that you’d find in the book. As an RN, I used this app almost daily. May have to take my business and money elsewhere. Shame.”

  • Don’t PURCHASE

    By Tata.42
    App doesn’t work. Had to have Apple issue a refund. The trial works great for the meds it has included but the app after purchase does t work. Couldn’t even get passed the first page.

    By Banjo42
    This App has not been working AT ALL for the past few months! NONE of the functions are working or accessible! As a nurse I have come to rely on this app over the years but this year it quit working completely yet they still charged me the full automatic renewal fee plus charged me twice!!! Now I’ve paid $49.98 for an app I cannot access! This is criminal and I will be pursuing every option to get all of my money back and to have this company shut down for STEALING FROM CUSTOMERS AND COMMITTING FRAUD!!! They don’t even deserve the one star I gave them! What a shame!
  • Fraud

    By Jojokdd
    Don’t buy stole my money and I app won’t work. Plus the site doesn’t exist!
  • Don’t buy

    By Rlhphx
    Tried to buy this app and it never let me sign in and work. Free version is worthless, can’t get any info. Did everything to try and get it to work after subscribing and nothing. And their customer service is non existent. Thankfully Apple refunded my purchase so I can go find something that actually works.
  • Doesn’t work

    By Migdala
    I just downloaded this app and then removed the download because it didn’t work. All you do is type the name of a drug and you get a blank screen, nothing else. For $24.99/year I expected this to be a great app. Well it doesn’t work, so don’t waste your money. I’m disappointed...😣
