No anesthesia section

I was very disappointed to see that the current version of this app lacks an anesthesiology section, despite it being shown in the screenshots in the App Store. I paid for this app with that notion in mind, being an Anesthesiology resident... after inquiring, I was told that the anesthesia articles were now captured under the critical care section, but that doesnt really seem to be the case... love the idea for this app but disappointed that my specialty isnt really covered as it was billed to be...

Nice start

Decent start. Many papers missing. Incomplete cross-referencing. Would benefit from larger database


Crashing like crazy on my iPad Mini 4, especially when I try to sort by date. Also, the touch accuracy is totally off. I have to touch below what I want to select. Edit: working fine again

Very concise and practical

For anyone who strives to practice EBM, this app is outstanding.

A must app

This app is just amazing as a resident on floor for quickly looking up famous trials and their results. A must have!


An amazing IM intern showed me Journal Club on a a research heavy Stroke Service. Its role on my phone is different than UpToDates function because of its depth in landmark studies. I recommend it for med students encountering research heavy rotations and those with a genuine interest in navigating landmark studies.


App is good but some important trials are lacking. Hope they will be added in future updates.
