What’s New

Version 9.0.0

We here at EM:RAP have made an alarming discovery. At first, we weren’t sure what we were seeing. We thought it was our eyes, so we all went out and bought ourselves glasses. Then we wondered if it was our glasses, so we all returned them for a refund. No matter what we did, we all noticed the same thing: each time we released an update to the iOS app, primary and rural care practitioners all over the world seemed to turn a deeper shade of green.

We were about to give contact lenses a try when Mel Herbert suggested our eyeballs were probably fine, and that maybe some good old fashioned envy was the cause of the emerald shift in pigment. He prescribed a mighty update to the app, adding a primary care section complete with EM:RAP’s brand-spanking-new Right on Prime and Crunch Time FM episodes.

Now you can transform back into Dr. Bruce Banner with our monthly primary care reviews, dissection of the latest guidelines, and a 25-year primary-care back catalog, all while preparing for your boards. It isn’t easy being green, so sit back, relax, and enjoy hours of unparalleled primary care education now available in the EM:RAP iOS app.

Excellent content, beautiful app that could use some work

EM:Rap came highly recommend, and the content really lives up to it. There are a lot of free medical education sources, but this is worth the money. Unfortunately, the app still holds it back a little (and it isn't a completely unusable app or anything). If these three things were resolved I'd definitely give it 5/5
Big kudos to the recent update that allowed in-app searching!
1) the most annoying thing that needs to be fixed is to change the lockscreen control to back and forward 15 seconds, not back and forward tracks. When I'm driving and listening and I miss something, I don't want the distraction of having to unlock my phone, open the app, open the player, and then hit back 15 seconds.
2) maybe it works for other people, but I haven't been able to view videos on the app. Even the mobile version of the website has a video option.
3) annoying, but the least of my concerns thus far, it isn't very good at remembering where I left off

Playback issue

I love the content of emrap but the app often has difficulty downloading an episode, gets stuck in pause mode during downloading and won’t restart. Also it often does not go back to the same spot on an episode when I go to restart playback. Could be better

Playback issues

The big problem with this app is the playback. It often forgets where it last stopped and rarely resumes at the correct spot. It doesn’t multitask well. If you keep it running in the background and play is interrupted for some reason, when you reopen the app it brings you to the homepage, not what’s currently playing. It would also be nice if the 15-second forward and back buttons were integrated into the control center of iOS, like Overcast does. Just study Overcast and that’s how playback should be! Great content and I like the written summaries, but certainly lots of room for improvement.
