I use this periodically at work and home, and appreciate the detailed information. My only gripe is the very small text size, it looks like 7 or 8-point font. You can pinch and zoom, but then you have to move the screen around to read. After I updated iOS, this app would crash and close as soon as I opened it. I deleted it, then reinstalled it, and now the app works fine. Developer: please make either a 'medium' and 'large' font that justify to the screen width, or else a font size 'slider' adjustment like in the iphone text size options screen.

I'd like for you guys to extend the search function. Instead of only being able to search by name, why not have it to where you can search by use too? Simply have a premade list of uses and when someone clicks on a use, it'll show the herbs that are used that way. Other then that, it's good.

I’m running competitive research of medicinal herb apps because I had an idea to develop an app as a side project. Then i find this gem! I’m moving forward with my project and taking the reviews here into consideration. Excited to find my initial idea to allow users to browse based on their main symptom and track a remedy that way is what the user wants. Also, my app won’t be backed by their fine medical institution but it will definitely have better UX (user experience). Best of luck to you on your search for herbal solutions!

This app is easy to use, I really like that it has a professional and lay views. Streamlined, helpful, and concise. I only wish it had more on essential oils! Still, this is a really great resource for evidence based information on alternative options where the research is few and far between.

I used to LOVE this app! It worked flawlessly.. Updates were always good.. Info checked out so it was reliably useful on the go.. Now I can't even open it! 😩😢 It was opening for a while but would freeze and I couldn't use it. Then came another update and now it immediately crashes. It isn't my phone - this is the ONLY app I have any issues with. Users beware right now. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP so I can use it again! 😖 VERY disappointed in the function after weeks of this nonsense.
