  • Poorly designed app

    By Mohdalg
    There is no debate of how amazing the content is. However, it is delivered in a very poorly designed app. The app needs major update in terms of search capabilities, inter-chapter links (especially for antimicrobial dosing), and redesign to be compatible with all apple products
  • Resolution of figures is terrible

    By 4broccoli
    The text is laid out very badly, and the low resolution figures are impossible to read.
  • Don't use if you need to buy in-app subscription

    By Retired Naval Aviator
    Spent $124.99 on in-app subscription. Worked literally once. Now it says there's no subscription for my apple-ID and no one at aap seems to be able to help. I will be livid if I can't get my money back.
  • For those with an empty App

    By jonnyboy1
    As others have mentioned, I found I suddenly had no content. Deleting the App and re-downloading it fixed things.
  • One and done!

    By Nick E6
    Works the first time after downloading, then nothing. Now it's like an empty book. Thanks AAP for the quality app.
  • Horrible

    By DomZ88
    This app is terrible. I can forgive the lack of an update for the current iOS if this app actually worked. You can't even read a single sentence without the app jumping back to the top of the page. This is unacceptable.
  • No longer works

    By shoelberg
    Cannot load content. When it did work - search function was useless - even search for HIV had no results!
  • buggy app

    By drdiazmd
    crashes frequently. search not very helpful. content dissapeared when membership lapsed. hard to get it back after renewal
  • Disappointing

    By Cloud 9 and a Half
    The app worked alright when it was released, but with subsequent updates it has become unstable: after opening a section, the page keeps moving back up to the beginning of a section. There is no way of adding bookmarks or highlight any content. I still depend on the printed version, that I had to purchase separately, or on the Internet subscription. Not a good thing when you are an infectious disease subspecialist and need ready access to the information.
  • Needs to work.

    By Peds ID
    Good when it works. But it often doesn't work so can't be my primary resource.
