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.

Looks great but

The app itself looks great. The layout looks carefully thought out. And has a lot of information. I got it through tan Instagram ad and read the reviews. I would love to try it out. But I am only a high school student. I play sports as well and do not have time for a job. I want to be an anesthesiologist and I think this app could better my study habits to help me get there. So maybe there could be a free version with add or make some of the content limited and the people with memberships get full access. I don’t know but I would really love to use the app. If not I’d keep the app until Im able to get a job in the future.

Great resource

I always have this ready to go whenever I’m doing rounds or am sitting in lecture waiting for questions to be asked - so much easier to find info on here than on Up To Date or other similar resources! Sometimes there are tiny discrepancies with first line treatments and diagnostic modalities that my attendings want me to know and that are relevant for shelf exams. Being able to add your own notes to each section is really great when that does happen or if you’re on a specialty rotation that goes farther in depth than the articles do. Just wish there was a way to add our own highlights to notes for study and review purposes

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the nice rating, Keener! We are delighted to know that you find our content useful not only in lectures but also on the wards.

Having an option to manually highlight passages in notes is certainly something that would help while reviewing this content for your exams or other tasks. Your suggestion has been passed on to our product team for consideration. I hope that this is something we will be able to add to AMBOSS in the future.

Feel free to send us a message at if you would like to further discuss this or anything else. Jakub from the AMBOSS team
