Lack of help

I’ve had the Sanford Guide book for several years, the last two years I decided to purchase through the App Store and everything was fine until a message appear while I was doing some research that says “Your subscription has expired” and I checked in my subscriptions and the invoice and it clearly says I have full access until December 2020, so this clearly a way to make you pay twice and I haven’t received any kind of help. The advices they give doesn’t work. I need you to fix this issue or give me my money back.

Last update destroyed program

This was a great app until the last update. Despite paying the yearly fee, the program will not update. I cannot login with email and password. Even trying to reset password gives me an invalid email message. Company denies the issue and blames it on Apple and the user. Rather then help, they just suggested cancelling my subscription if I am not happy (after keeping the payment). This is very disappointing from a company that used to be highly regarded in the medical field, and one that I used as a physician for years.

Addendum: deleting the app and redownloading allows updating content, but any updates require this to be done, unlike every other Apple app. There is also a bug in the app that you cannot create an account despite a button to create account. It also will not link to an account you set up via the internet either. The company's response is that it must be my fault.

UPDATE: Has the issue been resolved? If so, we'd appreciate it if you could update your review. ORIGINAL: We’re sorry that you’re unhappy with our support. As stated in our correspondence, your subscription is through Apple, so no additional login is required to use the app or receive updates. Creating an account is only necessary for cloud backup and syncing with other devices via the Sanford Guide Cloud. Unfortunately, Apple will not allow us to access your account without action on your part, so we cannot associate your Apple subscription with a Sanford Guide Cloud account - only you can do that. Since you do not yet have a Sanford Guide Cloud account, we have created one for you, and will email you credentials to use. You can always go to the app’s Account screen to ensure that you have our latest content update. Content is updated daily, and updates will download to your device whenever you are connected to the internet and using the app.

This and UpToDate. Best work related apps on my iphone. All the ID fellows use this one at my institution. It's much better than the Hopkins app in that it gives you direct evidence based recommendations based on indication and then, conversely, breaks down each antibiotic and what their primary "recommendation" is as well as what indications they are "approved" for.

On top of it all, this is the best most accessible antibiotic biogram I've seen.
