iOS Lippincott Nursing Drug Handbooks 1.1 Mobile
Downloaded and won`t even open- "a few bugs" doesn`t even describe it.
Apps is jerky and slow. Come with free information on 100 drugs.
Sub-menu bar expand function is poor. It shows text at the middle or the end. I needed to scroll up.
Apps need improvement. Can be very useful.
