App Reviews

  • Terrible

    By Coder RN
    Terrible customer support. Started receiving index.html message error message after 3 months of use. Contacted customer service and told “this issue will require revised reprogramming and a deployment of the revised NDH mobile app to the stores. No exact date on fix. Expect revised software will be available within a month.” Could any other industry get away with such low standards? Would CVS exist if they told customers our system is down expect to get your meds in a month? Not offered a refund or anything. Don’t worry I’ve canceled my annual subscription and am now a subscriber of Davis Drug Guide for Nurses.
  • Constant Failure

    By L.Sutton
    Constant failure and app shut down. Continually states Error, or won’t pull up medication information. A true disappointment!
  • App malfunction

    By TSU Nursing Student 2018

  • Broken app

    By NateTheRN
    I’ve been using this app for years. All of a sudden one he last couple of weeks it has just stopped working.
  • So disappointed

    By Athom289
    I really like the layout and information in this drug book, but the app itself is incredibly glitchy. I haven’t been able to log into it due to “updates” and then page refreshing that never actually happens. Won’t renew my subscription.
  • Buy the book

    By bny831
    Worked well when I first downloaded, but after an update to my phone not working at all. They say it could take a month or more. Not worth the $24.99 at all.
  • Dissatisfied

    By Thickums580
    I paid $24.99 for a 1 year subscription to this app and it hasn’t worked in weeks!!!!
  • It just stopped!

    By Activegrl
    I have been using this app regularly (and have a paid current subscription good through Oct 2018) and had no problems until now. They seem to have all of a sudden, without warning, disabled the app and when I click the link to contact the developer about the problem it’s also been changed/disabled. SOOO MAD!! This app isn’t cheap and that is wrong and dishonest of LWW!! Now I apparently will have to purchase another drug app for reference at work but you can guarantee I will NEVER purchase another LWW app.
  • Super Glitch

    By Kimipelimt
    I can’t get this App to work at all. I can’t open any of the meds by name. It gives me an error message despite trying to reload it. Hoping to get my money back because this App is terrible!!!!
  • Excellent app!

    By Dis satisfied
    I use this app so much in my work! It is user-friendly and helps me find quickly and easily the info I need on meds for their usage, dosing, side effects, and interactions with other meds. The black box warning alert is to special dangers, which is also so helpful. Thanks for all your work to keep this an excellent resource for us.
