Was a 4, now a 4.6 with changes

Excellent resource for learning and seeing what others do with medical issues that lend themselves to photographs and/or discussion. Still needs to: Be able to support the uploading of videos. Be able to allow typed in websites or references to act as hyperlinks.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for sharing this feedback, Kphelgerson. We are currently working on improvements to the app, so I have passed these points along to the team.

Kind regards, Ana from Figure 1

Lacks integrity

This app was fantastic to start, but has become a sad community of apparently ill-prepared providers as well as support personnel who seem to misunderstand scope of practice. I have never seen such egregious use of antibiotics as I see posted in cases on this app, as well as LPNs, RNs and EMTs who think hey have more training than they do. There are about three users who post valid, evidence-based information, otherwise it seems to be an outlet for nurses and EMTs who wish they were doctors, and bottom-of-the-barrel med students who really should know their stuff better. Embarrassing.

Love this app again

I used to go to this app every day using my iPad. Now it flips to portrait and immediately crashes upon opening. Please fix!

Problem solved with last update. Now it works great! Thanks!
