Love it but make the app better

Hi, I think amboss is an amazing resource. I am in my preclinical years and this is by far the best bang for your buck. The questions range from easy to hard, and I mean challenging your mind brain hurts hard. The explanations are fabulous and the integration between the library and knowledge is nothing spectacular but gets the job done. The reason why I didn’t give this 5 stars has nothing to do with the quality of amboss but the app doesn’t allow you to highlight key things in the passage which is a super downfall because that’s how I take my tests. Also, I only use my iPad for school so I cannot reap the benefits of using the amboss Anki add on on my iPad, which is disappointing. Overall love the app and recommend it for anyone who wants to challenge themselves and be a better doctor.

Developer Response ,

Hey Phil, thanks so much for your review. We are so glad that you love our content! The ability to self-highlight text manually in our Knowledge app is a great suggestion and I can understand why this would be so useful for you. I have passed this suggestion directly on to our Product team. In the meantime, you can use the AMBOSS Highlight feature which can be found in each of our articles. This feature will highlight the high-yield information relevant to your study objective. Please make sure to keep your study objective up to date to get the most of this feature, you can change it at any time in the Account Settings > About me section.

Our Anki add-on does not support the mobile version of Anki because of the technical limitations associated with this version of the Anki app. This is something that may change in the future, and we are looking forward to being able to build an AMBOSS Anki add-on which will be compatible with the Anki mobile app.

Everything you will ever need

This is really a robust app for medical students and clinicians, I wish I had known about it earlier, the library is just amazing and qbank is really helpful to solidify your knowledge learned from the library, the only minor problem is the new font style in the latest update, I really prefer the previous one, please at least add the option to revert back to the previous font style, thanks a lot

UPDATE: Thanks really with the update the font is now so perfect.

Developer Response ,

Hello Ramyar, I am sorry that you are experiencing this issue. The font will be adjusted once you update the app to its newest version. If the font hasn't returned to normal after an update, please send us a message to and we will look into it! Jakub from AMBOSS.

Love it but 1 suggestion

I absolutely love Amboss - anytime I’m at my local free clinic and get pimped by an upper level or attending I’ve learned that as long as I view the Amboss page for the disease ahead of time all the info is there for me to get those questions correct. I am very grateful for how the library is formatted in the app and have had no issues or glitches with pulling up info that I need.

I do have 1 suggestion though - when you select a word in any other app and click “Look up definition,” I wish it would pull up Amboss definitions alongside Apple’s integrated dictionary & Siri Wikipedia suggestions. I often use other resources like Pocket Medicine and anytime I want to cross reference with Amboss I feel like the Look up function would be the most efficient way to do so. Other than that, app is fantastic!

Developer Response ,

Hello there. Thank you for taking the time to write this fantastic review. We are happy to hear that you find our content useful in your studies.

Your suggestion was passed onto our product team, and I hope that in the future we will add the "Look up" feature to our Knowledge app. If there is anything else you'd like to discuss in the meantime, feel free to reach out to us by sending a message to

Jakub from the AMBOSS team.
