Would like option of FA browse on app.
I submit fair amount of feedback on desktop version but seems pointless because the only people who ever respond are non-tech and they have no interest that the font size buttons don’t work on certain pages, or video cuts off in mid topic and seems to have been posted that way, and other tech issues. And in Browse mode thumbs up/down not available, so any feedback goes to non tech.
So despite asking for feedback to help improve software, seems more a waste of time than useful for anyone.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback! We do review and escalate all questions and comments that come through the web client and the mobile app. In fact, we have an update coming early next month that addresses a heavily upvoted request regarding Flash Facts, so we encourage you to continue to make your voice heard. We are exploring ways of bringing Browse FA to the app, so stay tuned. Thanks again!


Frustratingly unreliable

Paid for a one month subscription to try out your service before my end of year exam. Not only does your service go down the day before my final and I can’t log into my account, but it goes down in the middle of a practice test.

On top of that the error I get says “We can’t connect to your device right now, please try again” so I tried for over an hour to get it working again thinking that it was an error on my part. My computer or wifi or something. What it should have said was “Our service is down right now, please try again later” Or it should just be much more reliable. This is after having several issues staying connected during practice tests as well.

Not only am I mad that I wasted my money on a month subscription but I will definitely not be renewing and will be advising all that I can to stay away.

We're sorry about the issue that you faced last week. Our hosting provider, Microsoft Azure, went down on that day, which impacted our site (as well as many others around the globe). We would appreciate the opportunity to follow up with you, so please contact us at if you would be willing to talk with a member of our team. Thanks!

Great potential but frustrating

Such a great idea to have all the quizzes and Qmax question along with the first aid book. As a de gal student studying for CBSE I love the extra information and not just going through the book alone.
However so frustrating:
1. Why is your website sooo battery draining. If I use your website every day it will destroy my Mac battery within months.

So I have to use app on my iPad
1. No way to access text on this. Is it so hard to have the little excerpts go with each video?
2. Why is there no way to speed up the videos on iPad? It’s not that hard to build that into the app
3. Why is there no way on desktop or app to access first aid as a whole? I don’t want to be confined to the one section and I know I can click to another but I should be able to see entire book. There’s already a PDF for that. Why don’t you guys include that with the app?

I love the UMSLE-RX info wise but it’s so difficult to use and it’s so frustrating cause I almost paid half a grand for a 2 year subscription and I shouldn’t have to deal with that. I would literally give a 5 star rating if not for those 4 problems I outlined

Thanks for sharing your feedback. Would you be willing to send us additional information regarding the devices you're using, specifically your Mac (including the model and your current operating system)? We haven't heard of users reporting excessive battery drain, so we want to make sure we understand the issue you're having. Please contact us at

We have been looking at ways of incorporating the digital version of First Aid in the app, so we appreciate your suggestions. We would like to discuss your ideas regarding videos directly, so, again, please email us. Thanks again for using USMLE-Rx!
