All the Oxford Handbook apps are WAY overpriced, poorly formatted and not all that easy to navigate. However, it is handy to have the essential ones so you don't have to lug the paper versions around. If they'd just drop the price to something a bit more reasonable, I'd be prepared to overlook their design flaws and buy a load of different ones for reference. At the current price point, I can't justify doing that, particularly as the print versions are significantly cheaper.

This is a really awful app. I downloaded it around 2 years ago expecting it to be a helpful decision aid. I can honestly say I have never found it useful in any clinical situation. I will be asking for a full refund. Really disappointing.

Smart but expensive

Oxford series are no doubt an indispensable resource to the clinicians.
I found the app text crisp and clear with dual iPad/iPhone reading format.
Like all medhand series, OHAM proves to be useful handy tool yet expensive. I am sure that it's sales could go 10 times, if the cost is reduced to half.
