A good start

This could be an invaluable resource to have. If the app worked properly and was intuitive to use. Most of the time searches do not work. The iPhone and iPad versions are similar but with functions that work on one but not the other. There are two versions of the Red Book app - which to get? The contents section does not even work most of the time. Then with the new Pediatric Care Online app, you ask yourself why even bother with this one.

Please fix this app! A pediatric version of the easy to use Sanford Guide app would be very welcome.

Poorly designed app

There is no debate of how amazing the content is. However, it is delivered in a very poorly designed app.

The app needs major update in terms of search capabilities, inter-chapter links (especially for antimicrobial dosing), and redesign to be compatible with all apple products

Search function not working

Paper version still much better.
The search function is inoperable.
Content frequently missing or unavailable.
