Powered by WebMD, Medscape offers physicians, medical students, consumers, and other health care professionals a wealth of easy-to-access medical information wrapped up in a beautiful interface. And the best part is that you don't have to pay a dime for it, nor put up with any ads.
Ideal companion for medical doctors and students: Medscape offers valuable information in the form of a comprehensive, reliable reference database featuring 4,400+ conditions, all essential drugs and hospital procedures, and tools like drug interaction checker and risk calculators, as well as through the latest medical news presented in a distraction-free window.
Educational component: The app incorporates accredited CME/CE courses, which we have found stimulating, especially since you can earn credits by answering medical questionnaires. That you can save news articles and drug & clinical reference articles and review them later also helps.
Great design and execution: The developers deserve kudos for fitting so much info into a lightweight interface. The pages for drugs, conditions, and procedures are especially well organized and comprehensive, making this app about as good as a medical handbook, but more accessible.
Somewhat lengthy setup: Apart from having to register an account and provide information such as your name, email, and location, you must also download a few large packages of data before you can enjoy all of the app's features. The advantage of downloading the content to your device is that you can use the app offline.
Poorly implemented landscape mode: While you can view in landscape mode conditions or procedures, when you return to the Reference or Home screens, the app switched automatically to portrait mode. On a big tablet, this can be terribly annoying.
Medscape sets the standard for medical apps on Android. Whether you're a medical professional wishing to expand your knowledge or a consumer eager to learn more about a particular condition, drug, or procedure, this app is the right choice for you. You'll be impressed.
