  • Excellent repository for evidence based medicine

    Brief update: changed to 5 stars with most recent update as the link issue has been fixed. This is a fantastic app for any training or practicing physician. The only feature request that I have is to open trial links within the application (currently, they are directed to open in safari)
  • Very limited content.

    By cetcevans
    Not much in the lung cancer space. Was pretty excited about this app. Heard Peter Attia rave about it. Everything I searched for was not found. Very disappointing.
  • No anesthesiology

    What happened to anesthesiology? Do we not count?!
  • MD

    By anyonenickname
    I purchased the app based on one of the websites recommendations and the high ratings of the app. But now I feel that I wasted $7. The entire surgical specialties including general surgery, vascular, urology, and vascular surgery have only 17 studies and some of them are 10 years old. This is not what I expected. The description of the app is misleading. This is just a sample of some articles in each specialty. Actually some specialties has only one or two articles.
  • In its infancy

    By Rfz1
    Tremendous potential, great execution so far in terms of format, but weak in terms of volume of content. Hopefully that will change.
  • Concise and helpful.

    By MusicIsMyAirplane
    All the benefits of an actual journal club without the tiresome human interaction. Very worthwhile investment.
  • Stupid app

    By ohbunniee
    This app shows trials that are ten year old. It crashes and is a total waste of money. I want a refund
  • Great app that keeps getting better

    By Albend355
    This app is great to look and refresh your memory on the studies. There were not so many papers at the beginning but it keeps getting better as they add more and more almost daily I have noticed.
  • Well updated controlled trial database

    By Denvercolaw
    Please keep this app up and running. Much appreciated.
  • It is Great,end of story...the rest is up to us!

    This app is not meant to give us as physicians the final word but a starting point to conduct a systematic review.
