User reviews of Epocrates
The periodic update can be slow. It would be nice if updates could be initiated manually instead of at scheduled times.

Needs 32MB free to install the data... didn't see that in the docs.

Great app! Yes, it took about 45 minutes to download. On my VM Intercept 99% of the download went to my SD card, my internal only went down by about 1 meg. - but the SD card ends up with a very large "Epocrates" folder (36 mb). The "free" version only give you pill info, but a lot of good info on their site once registered. I'm not rooted and was surprised this app used my SD for storage.

Really wanted to use this, but it kept telling me my email address was invalid, so I could not register, and therefore could not use the app.

The app itself is great along with the fact that they now have Epocrates Essentials available, but the fact that it takes literally a day to download new content and eat up my battery in the process is completely unacceptable!!

Bad update The latest update has rendered the interface less intuitive. The previous version allowed med search for a drug to default to the indications and doses for adult, the latest update does not allow that therefore an additional tap is required to view medication doses.
