App Reviews

  • Annoying newsfeed and developers don’t care

    1
    By deepsoul13
    I’ve previously addressed the newsfeed popping up first thing when opening the app as have others in the reviews. Developers have 100% ignored the users request. For some reason it seems they’re under the impression people use the app for news and quizzes First and for reference Second. I have plenty of other sources that I will use first for cme and news before Epocrates. I want a reference app that’s quick to open and use- and I don’t want to get stuck waiting for a delayed-newsfeed to open across the whole screen. Either disable the full screen popup or give an in-app settings switch that lets users disable it once and for all.
  • Horrendous

    Epocrates review: Can't copy text. Other medical apps allow this. Text too small. Does not use system fonts. Crashes on start up when internet connection is bad. You know, the point of an app is to make things easier than the website.
  • Unable to paste in password

    It is a very bad sign when an app login blocks pasting from a password manager.
  • Where’s the differential diagnosis generator?

    I use the app mainly for the differential diagnosis generator but I don’t see it anymore with the latest update
  • Hmm

    I love the concept of epic rates but hate the pop ups. Worse than the pop ups are the mandatory updates that need to happen when I’m with a patient. What’s the point? I end up relying on other software.
  • Forced “news” feed annoying

    By Dr Pe
    I do not find news feed useful. Being forced to view the articles is annoying. The drug information is indispensable.
  • Good but...

    This app is good, and I’ve only had one complaint until today. The one complaint I’ve always had is the notifications page that automatically pops up every time I open the app. This is frustrating because there are already alerts in the app to tell you that you have new notifications (which I don’t use for anything anyway), and you have to wait for it to pop up to then have the option to close it out and get on with what you opened the app to look up. It just adds annoying extra clicks and takes extra time when you’re trying to get to something fast. The new annoyance with the app is that they are doing away with the DDx feature this month. This feature has been a constant go to for me in school for certain assignments, and our teachers even encouraged us to get the app to be able to use this feature at the beginning of our first year because it would come in so handy for some of the things they want us to do. Such a disappointment that they are suddenly getting rid of this. I turned to this app a lot over other apps because of this feature throughout school and still today, but I guess I will be rethinking my subscription to this app when I have others like it now.
  • Beware falsification of credentials hack

    1
    By AZ_Doc
    Several years ago I registered with this company and noticed my credentials were wrong raising questions by my employers. Epocrates blamed it on the AMA. The AMA had my correct credentials. Not sure what game they are playing so I closed my account. Recently I stupidly registered with them again to try this app again, and their site could not recognize my credentials. I then noticed on Google that my credentials were changed by numerous web sites to incorrect listings again. Clearly these “ratings” sites are in cahoots ( buying or sharing)with epocrates being given or creating false credentials by epocrates and then putting them on Google search indicating a person is not a physician. Epocrates is either deliberately falsifying credentials or unable to correct their incorrect information. I just signed up with them after years of complaints and within weeks my false information reappeared on Google. Think Facebook is bad, beware of your information if you voluntarily provide this company your credentials. I contacted them to erase my credentials and was told their would be no definite time frame and I should my lawyers contact their lawyers. Beware what to whom they are selling your info and if it is at all correct. May require a class action lawsuit for them to take this seriously.
  • Crashes

    Had not worked well. Crashes and freezes up. Very disappointing.
  • Great resource at the bedside

    I frequently turn to Epocrates for drug interactions - it is quite helpful. It is also helpful for quickly reviewing medications I am not familiar with. The other portions -Guidelines, ICD-10 and Disease References are also quite helpful on the fly. It is my go to reference in the room with patients.
