Ratings and Reviews
Password required at every use
I used to love this app (and other Micromedex apps) but now it is requiring I enter the password every single time I open the app. And the passwords aren’t self set and are always a weird combo of letters and numbers that I won’t possibly be able to memorize. This is paid for by my employer and it was annoying enough when my password randomly would expire but now, it’s rendering this app nearly useless. In the ED... I don’t have time to look up passwords on the computer to lo k up a drug or UV comparability. This needs fixed.
Requires frequent automatic updates that are impossible to bypass or turn off. Does not update via the app store but instead only does when you start the app. Update progress cancels and restarts if your phone auto locks. This app could be a potential liability if relied upon in urgent situations
Wonderful app for critical care
I’m not understanding all of these negative reviews. The app has worked just as described since day one. I have no complaints. Bypass the updates when opening the app by simply selecting “no” when asked if you’d like to download updates now and manually update app at a later time if needed to use emergently.
