  • Garbage app

    App is absolute trash. The subscription/log-in process is convoluted. Passwords don’t function properly, and the reset only resets the password for the web store but not mobile access. I wish my institution didn’t use this service.
  • Keeps crashing

    It seems that over time the information gets more generic. Specifically in areas such as MOA. As pharmacists are a primary customer it would be good to have as much detailed information on the details as possible. New UI is not easy to navigate. Why did you make it use an extra keystroke to search? Previously one started typing and drug names popped up in a given database. Now you have to type and hit search then correct spelling then hit search again, rinse and repeat. Annoying. Beginning to think there are other options that are better although I’ve been using continuously for over 15 years now. 3 stars for content but would only give 1 star for UI.
  • Update is hard to use

    This new version of mobile Lexicomp is very hard to use now that I can no longer go straight to the section of the monograph that is needed. It’s really annoying to have to scroll all there at down to PK or the Preparation section because it’s farther down.

    **revised** Developer published a fix to the update screen default. Everything is back up to speed and no more waiting for drug info if there is slow or no WiFi access. Thank you! The newest version of the app defaults to the update screen. I can’t tell you how much I HATE this. If there is a poor signal or no WiFi access in a building, it is not possible to navigate away from the update page until the device has failed to make a connection. How embarrassing when a physician stops me in the hallway or calls and I can’t look up the information of concern. It just makes an angry physician who isn’t interested in waiting while I stare at my unresponsive screen. If I could keep the drug data in my head for instant recall, I wouldn’t need Lexicomp in my lab coat pocket at all times. Please change this!

    Update: The latest update fixed my 2 problems I wish this new update didn’t automatically check for updates when you open the app. I work in a place that doesn’t get reception or WiFi so I’m stuck on that update page for at least a minute until it fails to connect. I can’t navigate away from that update page when I don’t have reception. Also when you search for a drug I wish it would show the drugs that begin with the letters you typed first. For example, if I search for a drug that begins with H, show the H drugs first. Don’t show me every single drug that has the letter H in it.
  • Nice refresh

    Update is awful. Difficult to use. Pediatric dosing missing (for example cefdinir).
  • Issues with 5.0

    Agree with most recent review regarding annoyance of app automatically checking for updates every time I open it. Also, the search function is now a filter function in Lexi-Drugs, which is useless and slows me down when trying to pull up individual medications. The update is great otherwise, but these two issues are significant.
  • Please fix...

    Like other recent reviewers, I am annoyed the app goes to ‘updates’ whenever. The app is opened. The vast majority of the time when I open the app I looking up information, not updating. And most of the time that I am looking up information, I am on my cell service which I am not going to use to update my app. I will do so when I am on my home WiFi.
