Great and usefull!

Takes a little long to updTe and set up but very usefull and saves lifes!

Application top, si vous excellez en anglais et surtout si vous êtes médecin.

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!

Needs an iPad version

It needs a real iPad version...

Great app

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.

Terrific update.

Online access to reach the drugs database was a terrific update. Previous version was much better than this.

Very advanced program

I feel like a doctor now :) You need to sign up. Its a program for professionals. Good work. Thanks.


Simply a brilliant App! Loved it!

Zero Stars

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.


Very, very quick. Reliable as known from the iPod...but much faster. Just get it.


Just updated to the latest version. Crashed to home screen immediately. Hopefully this will be fixed quickly.

Great Program but needs an iPad Version!

Great App, however it would be nice to have an HD version for the iPad!


One of the best features was the ability to input multiple symptoms and have it come up with a differential diagnoses list. It is the only thing holding me back from paying for essentials. Hope you guys decide to bring that feature back!

Great app!

Best app on the subject. Could use some improvements, such as the ability to store pill pictures on the phone so it doesnt have to be accessed via wi-fi. Also, should have a Canadian version!

Good but missing...

I find the app really useful. However, as a paramedic in Canada, I find the lack of Canadian meds lacking. Next update perhaps?

MD Emergency Physician

Perfect app. Recommend getting Deluxe edition. To Epocrates crew: Should provide more pharmacological info to rival Davis drug guide including more pharmacokinetic and dynamic info and more microbiology sections. Resource centers are great keep updating them and adding them Continue including more comphrensive information and provide option to turn off landscape rotation mode when not wanted. Thanks :)

needs updating badly

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?

Canadian Content Lacking

I have tried using epocrates for a couple of weeks now. In Lexi-comp I could almost always have Canadian drug names (generic or brand) come up. Have run into a number thus far that dont show up on epocrates. Ex. Daxas. Otherwise, great app.

The program I use most

A great program. I have many other medical programs but I love this one. Clear and concise.

Needs instant use for free version

Long and tedious sign up process that never ended up working. Its not worth the effort.
