Improve UI Navigation

Thank you for bringing this App to Windows! Please make a few UI adjustments: Add a search bar. Add alphabetical characters to fast forward the list of drugs. Improve navigation through the base list and individual drug characteristics Allow immediate navigational response to keyboard keystrokes.

Very well designed and quite handy too

As a quick pharmacy reference, this app is astonishingly good. Interestingly, the iPhone and Windows8 versions are slick and fast, but the Android version is laggy and nearly useless in a clinical situation. However, I applaud the efforts of the team that created this version for Windows, as it is fast, fluid, and beautiful. The fact that there is some toxicology information on each agent makes this database more useful than Epocrates for us here in the Emergency Department. Update 3/18/2014: Still love the interface on Win 8.1. Updates and initialization take some time, but that is OK. I wish there were a version of this for Windows Phone 8.1

Clear and concise!!!

Would give 5/5 if it provided more features like drug interactions by plugging in individual drugs, pill identification and dosage conversions. Also please update the app to have a built in search bar given the changes in Windows 8.1. Otherwise a very decent and usable app for physicians.

Great start

As the best of the two drug reference apps on windows 8, I love it. But the features are definitely lacking compared to other platforms. I really wish they ported it to windows phone too.

Good but restricting

As a pharmacy student, and soon to be pharmacist, this app is pretty lacking in tools, but is full of content a practitioner requires. It would be great to see DDI tools, IV compatibility, etc, just like the online service offers. It definitely needs an update for Windows 8.1 for snap views, and definitely because it crashes frequently when searching. Snap views benefit most when it comes to rounding. Having Citrix Receiver open on one side then this on the other really makes a Windows 8 tablet awesome for medical use, but is lacking due to apps right now.

Almost great app

The app's touch interface will not work. To get to drugs starting with an O I need to keep sweeping the window to the left. I gave up after just hitting the Bs in 15ish swipes. I think it may be a bug. Otherwise this would get a MUCH higher rating. I'll leave it installed for now hoping for an upgrade. I have the first version of the Surface Pro with Win 8.1 installed.

Great that there is a Micromedex app for Windows 8 as I use this database on a daily basis for work as a pharmacist. However, having to pinch and zoom and scroll to find a specific drug monograph is very annoying and not at all efficient. PLEASE ADD A SEARCH FUNCTION!

Exactly what I always wanted on Win8. Now how about a version for Windows phone?

helpful, but...

It is a very helpful tool, but since the update, it does not allow me to jump to a letter. If I want to jump to a letter, say a drug that starts with "S" I now have to scroll all the way to the "s"s. I really do like this app.

Some work needs to be done to fix this app, I've had it for over a year now and I've been only able to use it once. Crashes and is always downloading new content and crashes again.
