User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
How often does the app get updated? I wonder if the creators can add more procedures? Sometimes I’ll search for a relatively common procedure and it won’t show up. The design and layout also look like they could use an update as well.
Every time I update this app I lose all my notes. I see the memo about backing up all notes outside of the app, but this should be a “just Incase” not every time the app updates. The notes section is pointless to even have because in a few months updates will wipe them clean. Also missing some simple cases, even stuff that used to be there for instance tracheostomy yields nothing.
The best app out there!!! I honestly use this app everyday all day. It is so nice to know what I don’t is right at my finger tips in this app. Highly highly recommend this app for any SRNA. You can thank me later.
Having issues fitting the screen in landscape mode. Doesn’t scroll properly and the anticoag section wont load. It’ll just highlight what i click but wont actually open it. I have to go to the “categories” and search for the drugs there instead of looking them up directly by name. App needs some DEV work.
This is the best app. I have used it for four years now and love it. The drug info that was added is superb. Keep adding more stuff! I would love to see a coexisting morbidities section Complaint: you really need to add a ENT section to case tips. Edit: I found it under pediatrics, that’s pretty confusing. I think you can just put all surgery’s together
