Everyone needs this app!

I fell in love with this app as soon as I started using it. This is something I really needed, keeping up with my own meds in addition to those of various family members. Very user friendly.
I’ve only ever had trouble with this app once. It either wouldn’t open, freeze on the main pain and possible a couple of other things, I don’t recall. I received immediate, very responsive attention after I reached out to get this fixed.

One reason I chose this app was because it was free, I don’t pay for apps. If I’m not mistaken, the bugs I mentioned above were not long after this change. I mentioned that I don’t pay for apps but would gladly pay for this one because it truly makes part of my life so much easier & that truly depend upon it but that I would not pay until it was working correctly.

App fixed, working perfectly, happy me, ready to pay.
Then he gives me a free subscription for my troubles! Very happy girl.

I had been using this app a few years before this issue occurred and while I don’t typically leave reviews, I intended to for this because it worked so well for me…I never did. Then, after the instance where I had difficulty, the speed in which my issues were resolved & the friendly response I knew I HAD to leave a review. So approximately six months later here it is.

Long review = Great product

High quality

I don’t normally write reviews but I have been using this app for a long time and I use it almost on a daily basis. There are many reviews out there that are upset with the subscription based service now, and I admit when it first popped up I deleted the app and tried to find another. I found many other apps but none had the quality of content and ease of use as this one. I am a paramedic and use this app almost daily for drug interactions and what not with patients. To me the $10 a year is worth it for medical professionals. If you don’t feel like the price is worth it then you should download and use a different lower quality app, as for me I will gladly pay the fee for the quality of information. Keep up the good work.

New Subscription Policies

This app has been great and has lots of very good information. I have had it for many years, but one day I open it to find instead of being able to “restore my purchases” like most other apps that have switched to these kinds of things, I am notified I need to pay a monthly subscription...that’s kind of garbage (and before I get the same reply as others who have left similar reviews, I realize it has been free to access, however, there was an initial purchase price. It has very useful information, and I enjoyed being able to quickly look up something I needed, especially when it came to interactions and safety, but I don’t use it enough to justify paying for a monthly subscription. I hate to say I am deleting this app, but it’s just not worth it.

Developer Response ,


I very much appreciate your support and payment of ~$0.99 more than 4 years ago. Thank you! That payment supported dozens of drug information updates, and just as important several major technical enhancements. Without these technical enhancements, Pocket Pharmacist would not run on the latest Apple devices.

To best support Pocket Pharmacist from here on out, all users are being asked to pay a nominal fee that is less than $1/month. This fee will help me (the lone pharmacist and developer supporting Pocket Pharmacist) to perform more periodic drug information updates while creating new innovative features (all included with the ongoing subscription).

At the end of the day, I want to be accountable to my users. Not some advertising agency or drug manufacturer. The subscription is not a commitment and you are free to subscribe and cancel as often as you like. So if you only use the app every few months, then you are free to do that and only pay about $3/year.

If you have any other questions​ or want an extended “free trial” (I’m more than happy to extend your trial while you re-think Pocket Pharmacist’s value) please reach out to me directly at
