Pros and cons of Nursing Central app for iPhone and iPad

Nursing Central app good for

This app is phenominal! I recommend it to all nurses and nursing students! I use it every day in class and clinical. Defintely worth it!
I also had the "Internet connection" issue like other students. It seems that iPhones (in comparison to other phones & blackberries) took the longest to load the app. That being said, this is so much more efficient & easier on the biceps than carrying around your own personal library. Well worth it.
Very handy for nursing students! I love having so many resources available whenever I need them.
Love it. Consolidated references....what more could you ask for?
Great app. A must have for a student nurse and a great tool for nursing practice
Its great extremely helpful. Drug guide helps with other names of meds much faster than looking them up. Grasp component is helpful for any nurse or student who is trying to increase recall.

Some bad moments

I have tried to load this app countless times but after I log in it says I have inadequate Internet and connection is lost. And trust me I have Internet. This is a bad issue
By reading the comments, I wanted to Dow load them but I cant even register, cant log in :(
I am having the same issue as others have found. every time i try and update my content it claims the network times out or bad connection or something despite the fact that i have very fast wifi (checked to make sure it was working properly). i’m trying one more attempt but if it doesn’t work i’m going to be asking for a refund. ridiculous that it should be this difficult to install.
Paid for a lot of money for this app, very disappointed!! Stopped working...but customer service refusing to help me sort it out!! They claimed I had to repurchase this overpriced app. Still not working!!
This app was AMAZING. I never needed a textbook or google or anything. I highly recommended it to all of my nurse friends. But now, for the past year or so (after putting in I think $250 into this app), THIS APP IS HORRIBLE. Literally every single time I open this app it wont let me look up the info I need because it has to update. I just updated it last week! And the week before that! Normally I am very patient about an app needing an update, but this app sometimes takes HOURS to update. I could just use google and get the same info much quicker. Also about 90% of the time, itll get to its final leg of the update and then tell me that it has failed to update due to connection or storage unavailable. So obnoxious. Why would you (app developers I hope you are reading this) have me waiting HOURS to use this app just for you to tell me the update failed due to connection? Why not tell me that right off the bat? And storage issues..? This app shouldnt take up so much space on my phone. Maybe they can get rid of the less used features when they are making room for all this "new", "great" stuff that I dont even use. I use it to look up meds and some diseases. Thats it. Im very unhappy with this app and I consider it a waste of money and would NOT recommend to anyone. I would love to speak with someone from customer service of this app if possible. Advice? Stop making the updates so frequent, stop forcing me to update before I can do anything on the app, stop making the app take up so much space and stop making the app update take hours. Thank you.
Pros: 1. It has an easy to read, straight to the point format. It saved my butt so many times on the job as a new grad. 2. The information listed covers everything you need to know in everyday lingo. 3. I prefer over micromedex. Easier to read. Cons: 1. It requires frequent updates and if you refuse to update, it wont work. Updating uses up memory on your iPhone/iPod, etc. 2. Only thing micromedex does better is the IV compatibility format.
