Latest update asking to subscribe even when previously owned

Downloaded (from my past purchases) after long to use it again. To my surprise, it asked for subscription at every stage after asking me to sign up first. Even if I try to restore purchases, it is still shows the same thing over and over again. This needs to be fixed.

Update: Sent them an email and they fixed access. Updating review to 4 stars. Still keeping one star as this migration should have been automatic and there might still be affected users.

Developer Response ,

We're glad to hear that our team was able to resolve the issue. We're very sorry for the inconvenience caused - it's definitely not the experience we want you to have!

Just a heads up to our users: if you haven't opened palmEM since version 10 was released in December 2022, you might be prompted to subscribe. Please email us at if you're affected and we'll make sure you're taken care of.

Thank you for reaching out to us and for updating your review. If you have any further concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're here listening and here to help!

Detailed though complex*

It's useful but for me it is confusing. It seems more like a general overview rather than going in depth for each subject. There are categories, subcategories and details. For example: ABC's: Adult Quick Med List: Lidocane: mg/kg IV. Maybe it's because I'm not a doctor or nurse but I don't know what all the 'details' such as the Pulseless/Stable/May repeat VT/VF and such means. Seems like it would be a good resource for those in the medical field, however.

Great POC resource!

Absolutely worth the money! As a Family Med doc in clinic, this is my one-stop shop for the occasional ED-type patient that somehow schedules an acute appt with me instead of going to an ED. It allows me to perform quick interventions while coordinating transfer. I’ve used it three times in the past month alone as a super quick bedside reference for calculating BSA for a burn patient, splinting a metacarpal fracture, and remembering the rules for clearing a C-spine collar. The info is very well organized and is limited to the pearls that we need to remember quickly in that moment. Shout out to Bret P. for recommending it.
