    This app is incredibly helpful and easy to use; but more importantly the customer service I received after emailing a question was not only timely but very kind and efficient! Definitely recommend

    I use Manual of Acupuncture probably eight years on my iPhone, iPad and laptop and thinking is best product for acupuncture practitioners today. I installed Manual of Acupuncture v2 yesterday and cannot login in my account on v2 and lost all my info on old version.

    I was very excited to see there was an upgrade for this app. Did the registration in the old app, but the new app just freezes if I put in my credentials. Very disappointed that I can’t use this app.
  • A timed upgrade.

    I had a minor problem with getting the app started but with the MOA team's quick support, the problem was solved within minutes. Thank you MOA team! The videos are crisp and clear. Brilliant with online edition access. Good features and technology. I am satisfied and have used the previous app for many years. This is a development that is in time.
  • App is good but...

    By Samerasi
    I have been trying to upgrade to pro for 2 days now and every time I put my fingerprint on the home button it looks like the payment went through but it then follows up with “your purchase could not be completed” however when I purchased an in app subscription to my local newspaper this morning I had no issues. Hope they get it working so I can buy the pro!
  • Upgrade of the decade

    By mehall7
    I have owned A Manual of acupuncture app since the day it was launched, and I have used it weekly, if not daily, ever since. This app has been my go to Acupuncture app for my clinical practice and clinical research because of its ease-of-use and detailed description, and my favorite part are the videos which is second to none of any other apps out there for acupuncture. I understand their need to upgrade their app to stay current with the updates of technology. I don’t mind at all paying for the upgrade since I have received my moneys worth years ago. The upgrade is user-friendly, works great on my iPad Pro , As well as on my Samsung galaxy note 9 and they are syncing beautifully. The videos are clear & crisp and they even have a separate tab so you can go straight to them faster. You can add your own notes and the pro edition has a very thorough reference section along with videos of the channels and collaterals and so much more. It took a week for the glitches to get through but it was well worth the wait because of customer service staying on top of the issues. I suggest you upgrade to the pro version whether you are a student or doctor. This app is back to being number one Acupuncture app on Apple and Google play store. Well done MOA team and thanks for your support to our profession.
  • Broken App

    By SeaNorth29
    This app is asking me for an in app purchase option to update to a pro version for a $49? I thought this was sold at $25 for a complete version. The app worked perfectly fine for a couple days & is now blocking out all the text and readings, giving one what’s called a Lite version? Yes, let’s please get this corrected, it would be most agreeable.
  • Worst upgrade ever

    By tom_athy
    Instead of fixing the issues from the previous broken version (paid in full), this version requires subscription before you can view any content in full!! The lite version you get grandfathered in is absolutely rubbish!! Is this how you reward paid customers? Or is this version just a cash cow to rake in more money?! -Update: review has been updated. The account transfer did not go through when i tried to log into to my existing acct. After contacting the support team, my access is now changed to: “standard”. For Pro level, you will need to sign up and pay a reduced upgrade fee.
