No access I'm a student nurse and has hoped to revise using this app. Don't have an appropriate email to be able to access the app. Appalling.

Samsung Galaxy S4 running on Optimised CyanogenMod 12.1 Has a lot of potential but the design is cumbersome..

Would have potential if I could actually access it! I'm a pharmacy student at Bath uni and this app would be really handy. Unfortunately bath don't do Athens login and therefore I cannot access this app. Would it not make sense for RPhS numbers to be used to get access seeing as this resource is vital for our everyday practice!! And paper copies of the BNF are becoming rather cumbersome.
