Pros and cons of Epocrates Medical References app for iPhone and iPad

Epocrates Medical References app good for

Takes a little long to updTe and set up but very usefull and saves lifes!
Merveilleuse application. Je la recommande à tous mes confrères, seul hic cest en anglais, alors je souhaiterai ainsi que tous les médecins francophones quil yait une mise à jour en français. Merci pour mes devellopeurs. Please update this great appli to french, it will be so great for us. Nice to have it. Thank you.
I have dificult in the registration again! Because my user name and password dont exist for epocartes. I had try restore my password and user name by e-mail but epocartes dont answer!
Great drug checker, but expensive subscription if you want all features. Some people, like me, dont like the idea of having to pay for the same app forever.
I feel like a doctor now :) You need to sign up. Its a program for professionals. Good work. Thanks.
Very, very quick. Reliable as known from the iPod...but much faster. Just get it.

Some bad moments

Online access to reach the drugs database was a terrific update. Previous version was much better than this.
This app comes from a company that deliberately misleads/deceives customers into thinking that theyre buying content when in fact its an overpriced subscription service. Although the company replied with "Yes, the content and the application is saved locally on the device, you can access the application without a Internet connection" to my question on "whether the app and the content will keep working beyond the 2-year subscription period for online updates?" the content stopped working the day the subscription expired! Incredibly arrogant! A clear NO BUY recommendation.
Just updated to the latest version. Crashed to home screen immediately. Hopefully this will be fixed quickly.
Its disappointing that Epocrates still hasnt releases an iPad version of this app. The lack of Canadian info is a real issue as well - how about a Canadian release, or including the information like other apps do?
Long and tedious sign up process that never ended up working. Its not worth the effort.
Dont ever install epocrates essential because youll be asked to put in password and log in username everyday. And if you are in a hospital building with spotty Internet or cellular connection, then u cant even open the application at all and you might as well delete this application and install skyscape, which is better in this aspect. I understand the need to verify the password during the initial installation process, but to be asked to put in password almost everyday? This is just unnecessary. This is the same thing with other epocrates associated applications such as modalitys procedures consult. Bottom line, insall skyscape or carry a more reliable printed pocket reference over this application.
