Old paperback manuals are growing in size and no longer fit in our pockets. Labor and delivery floors are increasingly hectic and the time to thumb through large “survival guides” is over. In conjunction with its emphasis on e-learning, the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has created this application with the goal of replacing hardcopy manuals in our field once and for all!
This application not only provides the user with quick facts about common obstetric encounters and complications, but it also provides nationally recognized, evidence-based protocols on how to manage them. Physicians, nurses and mid-level providers will find this tool vital in their daily practice.
Additionally, there is a quiz section covering high-yield elements of the OBGYN field that will be attractive to any medical student preparing for the shelf and OBGYN residents preparing for CREOG exams.
We encourage feedback on the product as we intend to release annual updates.

Ratings and Reviews
Fix the scrolling bug!!!
I have an iPhone X that’s updated. I can scroll through the guidelines and table on contents but for some reason I can’t scroll through the quizzes. Therefore, I can’t access all of the quizzes and I can only answer one question. Waste of money. I hope they fix this.
Promising but needs some serious UI work
I was excited to see an OB reference as there aren't many 'nuts and bolts' type apps for OB. Took a chance despite the $5 price tag. The content seems good but the user interface is disappointing. PDFs in Good Reader or another PDF app are easier to read (this app doesn't even do landscape). No search or index function. I don't mind a plain-text, non-flashy app but it's got to be useable/readable. For an example of a super-plain, non flashy app that is actually useable, see any of Brancel's medical references. Honestly, with this rudimentary of an app, I wouldn't charge for it and I wouldn't put my university's name on it. Two stars for concept.
This app has great potential but it's filled with bugs. The quizzes can be frustrating as some of the questions have print that trails off screen and you have no clue what is being asked. There are only four quizzes which in total is about 100 questions that aren't worth the 4.99. And to top it off, the info in the quizzes aren't found In the app. There is limited clinical info available in this app. Save your money until they upgrade this app at least 10 times.
