I love this app, I'm about to start a critical care rotation and feel that having reviewed this information I am better equipped. It reminds me of spending time with an attending, picking up useful little pearls.

Great idea. Poor implementation

Great idea to have a daily tip/pearl for educating medical professionals. Unfortunately, I have not seen a new tip/pearl since buying this app. The app has promise, and would be very useful if they provided up to date information based upon the most recent changes in evidence based practice. Worthless to reread tips from 2006. There have been a lot of changes over 8 years. For the cost I would not expect a brand new post every day, but I would expect a daily tip that includes new posts as well as occasional repeats of previous tips that support practices affecting medical care today. I would not buy this app again, as it is not useful after reading through the tips the first time.

Great starting place

This app has a lot of potenial!! Yes there is some gramatical errors and there is no organization to the data. But overall the information, If you take the time and go through a bunch is very good. I saw alot of new spins and tricks to utilize in the units. Definately something every resident should know. Hopefully the data will be better othanozed on the next update. Also after u save a item to favorates it won't let u go back and keep reviewing. U have to leave the app temporarily.
