Always installing Every time I load up this app is spends 3 minutes installing all the drug systems. Not very practical

Needs more flexibility Good application and a long awaited one. Option to let you download on 3g should be there when installing, not just wifi. And pom medication needs to be highlighted. Search function has improved. Thanks Edit: Why do I have to go through login again after each update? Edit Thank you for listening to users. Now how about working on the user interface? Especially on large screen mobiles? Update April 2015: Can you please look into the scaling issue for the UI? Still distortion when using non standard DPI.
