What’s New

Version 10.3.0

If a horologist tinkers with watches, then what do you call someone who tinkers with apps? An appologist? We only ask because that’s what we’ve been up to lately: tinkering with the innards of the EM:RAP app, replacing metaphorical cogs and springs in an effort to keep things ticking along smoothly. You might only notice some of these changes, like how we’ve fixed the search screen loading indicator, but we’ve made plenty of other internal updates which will contribute to the general well-being of the app.

Be sure to keep up to date with the latest medical education on the Internet with a happy, and very healthy, EM:RAP app.

Excellent content, beautiful app that could use some work

EM:Rap came highly recommend, and the content really lives up to it. There are a lot of free medical education sources, but this is worth the money. Unfortunately, the app still holds it back a little (and it isn't a completely unusable app or anything). If these three things were resolved I'd definitely give it 5/5
Big kudos to the recent update that allowed in-app searching!
1) the most annoying thing that needs to be fixed is to change the lockscreen control to back and forward 15 seconds, not back and forward tracks. When I'm driving and listening and I miss something, I don't want the distraction of having to unlock my phone, open the app, open the player, and then hit back 15 seconds.
2) maybe it works for other people, but I haven't been able to view videos on the app. Even the mobile version of the website has a video option.
3) annoying, but the least of my concerns thus far, it isn't very good at remembering where I left off

Great app, occasional issues. Could use CarPlay!

I hope the developers read the reviews. Great app. It pretty much functions as a podcast app dedicated to EMRAP content. So straight forward. Occasionally, it has issues remembering where you left of. When you come back to the app it is has reset the progress you made

Now on the wish list. I listen to this mostly while driving. It would be a nice convenience feature if it had a dedicated CarPlay function. So you could switch menus/sections directly from the car, rather then having to pull out the phone.

Playback issues

The big problem with this app is the playback. It often forgets where it last stopped and rarely resumes at the correct spot. It doesn’t multitask well. If you keep it running in the background and play is interrupted for some reason, when you reopen the app it brings you to the homepage, not what’s currently playing. It would also be nice if the 15-second forward and back buttons were integrated into the control center of iOS, like Overcast does. Just study Overcast and that’s how playback should be! Great content and I like the written summaries, but certainly lots of room for improvement.
