You’re better off avoiding this app and buying the book.

Content is ok, but search function is often frustrating and many links just don’t work. E.g. when trying to view the table of medication treatment options for Acne, it takes you the hand washing section of Contact Dermatitis.

No longer works following IOS 11 update. Still no update to app to be compatible with IOS 11. A very expensive non working app at £50!
