Lack of due notice for substantial change

There are ways to go about starting a subscription service. Forcing a splash screen without disclosure to users, instead just vaguely stating “sdk update” is shady practice.

To the developer: read your reply. It doesn’t address my comments. This is not about why you need to move to a subscription service. This is not about the cost. It is how you handled it. What you should do is pull the current version, put the older free version back in the app store, and make an announcement about your intent to charge for subscription on next update. I used to recommend this app to my colleagues, as well as residents and medical students. I don’t feel comfortable recommending it now, after this questionable practice.

Hi, we moved to a subscription model to support the ongoing editorial and development that is necessary to keep the information current, and the app functioning smoothly. If the subscription cost is prohibitive, the website continues to be a free resource for all users.

Best resource for a Family Nurse Practitioner

This is ABSOLUTELY the best $20 you will ever spend on a medical resource. I find it absolutely incredible the amount of people who are complaining in the reviews about paying $20 a year. Family Practice Notebook is extremely well organized, has everything you need to practice safely and efficiently, and with the latest evidence. Compare this to the $200 plus a year subscription for a Epocrates—FPN wins hands down-regardless of the subscription fees. I recommend this to all the new hires that I on-board at my organization, whether new grads or experienced NPs.

Great app for Nurse Practitioners

I have tried other medical reference resources, but this has been the best one, by far. And one of the least expensive. This app was recommended to me by a fellow Nurse Practitioner a couple years ago. I use it every day. The information I search for is easy to find, and I appreciate how the app stays updated. For me, one of the best parts, is that I can pull up this app on my MacBook Air, with the new Apple M1 chip. I keep it open, so my resources are immediately available. I recommended it to an NP student, and she finds it helpful. Highly recommend.
