Great content, clunky to use

Fantastic and useful content, presented well and clearly. Unfortunately, the app format can be annoying to use - I am frequently prompted to re-download the whole database (rather than individual conditions with updates). The download is huge and frequently doesn’t work over wifi.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review. I'm so sorry to hear that you have been having issues with the app. Can you please contact and hopefully we can get it quickly fixed for you. Many thanks, Elin

Medical student life saver !

I find this app so useful when I’m on the wards and hear something I don’t know or need to look up a condition. The way it’s set up is really useful to understand all the important facets of a disease!
