I truly love this app! Quick question though, what does it mean when certain drugs are blacked out? For example, Narcan, you can read all the information, however it’s not highlighted like the others.

Great Rx/Drug info app, New subscription unfair to past customers.

I’ve loved and recommend this app since purchasing it six years ago. At the end of my post I’ve included the 5 star review I wrote 3 years ago to demonstrate my support. I and everyone who had previously purchased the app before requiring a subscription to even open the app made an investment which has allowed you to survive & thrive since 2010. Our investment was not only paying $0.99 or whatever price, it was our time basically Beta testing your app and giving you data, feedback, or other info which helped develop the current app. However, I am now notified eI need to pay a monthly subscription to use the same app I’ve had for 6 years... that’s is so disrespectful. You should grandfather your past supporters and only charge those purchasing the free app from now on for subscriptions. At least allow some functionality that doesn’t require a subscription. Your requiring a subscription, even at $0.99/mo., it is penny wise and pound foolish. For the amount of short term gains you might have, you’re going to miss out on so much more by losing your most loyal fans that have been with you and supporting you over the years. Not to mention all the new customers you might have earned through all the exposure by posts, tweets, and event the old word of mouth free marketing that would more then make up for the potential lost revenue from trying to nickel & dime customers who’ve supported you up to now. I hope you reconsider your position of requiring subscriptions for your past customers. You had an amazing app, I hope you can survive with new subscription requirement. This was the review I posted in 2016: Great Rx app, This is a KEEPER!!! FREE until 2016 updates I searched and compared lots of apps and this was the best Pill Box app for myself and for tracking family or being a caregiver. One guy is working on 2016 updates. Please read the "About" section on developer's website. This is a great app with lots of good features that's still worthwhile while it's being updated.

Good resource

I use this app for work as a reference to do my assessments I’m a registered dietitian. I like the drug side effects, what this drug is used for and drug interaction.

Love this simple designed but very informative and helpful app.

I’m a patient and I love the health box, I can store all my information, or to be able to look at a certain medication and find out things like interactions and side effects. Great work on the app, love it.

Great app! But not willing to pay for it!

Had this app for years, downloaded it for free initially, deleted it a couple months ago. I’m not willing to pay when all the information provided is available free on the Internet.

B.S Move by developer.

Bought the app when it came out a few years back now the developer locks the first paying customers he had with the b.s of making us pay a monthly fee. Its a good app but I'm sorry how is this right? How can you make people repay for something they bought for a one time charge. I understand if you wanted to do that from now on but it just doesn't seem right to do this to people that own it. It's better to just Google the info you want instead even if it's going to take one or two more minutes than paying people that are going to screw you again with another b.s charge later again.

Unfair.

I’ll be deleting this app I’ve had for many years. It’s been a wonderful app but then one day, greed reared it’s ugly head and the app designers decided it would be best to start charging a subscription fee to use it. Consumers always have a choice and a voice. For drug information that is free through many other sources, say no to this subscription fee.

Intuitive and very handy

Found this many years ago and it is an absolute pleasure to pull out my phone when reviewing my meds with my healthcare folks. Usually I get positive comments on “my” organizational skills. Credit belongs to the app. Fairly easy to send my med list to my wife and she likes that a lot.

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:40 PM

This app has been great and has lots of very good information. I have had it for many years, but one day I open it to find instead of being able to “restore my purchases” like most other apps that have switched to these kinds of things, I am notified I need to pay a monthly subscription...that’s kind of garbage (and before I get the same reply as others who have left similar reviews, I realize it has been free to access, however, there was an initial purchase price. It has very useful information, and I enjoyed being able to quickly look up something I needed, especially when it came to interactions and safety, but I don’t use it enough to justify paying for a monthly subscription. I hate to say I am deleting this app, but it’s just not worth it.

Excellent

This app has been great since it’s infancy. What more can be said? The person behind it’s creation must work tirelessly to bring it to where it is currently. That cannot be said of a lot of apps or their creators. Jim Clark
