    Good but it used to be better. The search feature has become a little difficult to use. It's easier to just go into the sections and grab something that way than searching for the dx. Still a great app, that's pretty useful as a clinican. It's essentially a pocket guide for the DSM that's literally in your pocket!

    First version was easy to navigate but had typos they didn’t care to fix. This version has fixed typos, but it’s just basically a PDF of the desk reference and harder to navigate. You only have the option of jumping to main sections, not sub-sections. It takes you to the first page of the section and you have to scroll down the the specific disorder you want. Very cumbersome. You can also search and add bookmarks. I wish I hadn’t updated.

    Used to love this app. Updated it, and now it’s useless. It’s like navigating a poorly-made pirated PDF version of a huge text. It’s very hard to navigate. If I’m looking up delirium for example, it brings me to a page resembling the text version of the DSM-5 somewhere in the neurocognitive chapter and NOT anywhere near the delirium section (ironically, completely disorienting). Then I have to scroll through pages and pages, using my not-so-photographic memory of where the delirium criteria are located in the chapter. Until I finally give up and resort to Google. But now I see other people’s reviews, and I see I’m not the only one struggling. Please please please change it back to how it was before! It was amazing and so useful. I am actually having a very hard time imagining how the decision and planning around changing the app occurred! All that come to mind is the show, The Office!

    I've had the app for many years and loved it, untill... in the past couple months, They changed the way you access the DSM criteria, making it now feel like you have to thumb through an eReader, which is way harder than using an actual book. This used to be a great app, but 1 star until it's back to being an accessible digital form... I'm sure this has turned a lot of loyal users away from using it as well. Just buy the book. I'll update this review if things change.

    I am extremely disappointed. I bought this last weekend because I couldn't find my hard copy and thought this might be helpful. This app has many glitches in it. I can't bookmark anything because when I try to click the screen the option to bookmark disappears within a blink of an eye. Please fix the bugs.. it doesn't respond well when I am trying to scroll through it. I am using this app on a Samsung Note10 +

    This used to be an excellent app which I referenced on a regular basis. It was very user friendly in all aspects. Since the update, this app has turned into a big annoying document with terrible search features. I am baffled at how the update could be such a disappointing loss of quality. I see that other reviews share my opinion. Please change it back to when it was actually useful. The new search feature fails to yield much more than in-text terms. Again, please change it back to how it was. This was my go to app before the update, now I cannot use it. If I could I would give less than 1 star. You have to manually scroll through a whole Document to somehow find the category or disorder you are looking for (if you find it in time). Before it would take no more than 5 Seconds to find what I was looking for. I am not exagerating.

    Poor user interface with the newest update! The original was much better. No idea what the developers were thinking and who they got their feedback from. Extremely difficult to use, so many clicks are needed just to find the diagnostic criteria for a particular disorder. The content page itself is already a nightmare! Accept that it's a failure. Bring back the old interface!!

  • Awful update, took away all usefulness Jan 3, 2020

    By upset__user
    I used to absolutely love this app and thought it was well worth the money I paid for it... until the update happened. It used to take me seconds to find all that I needed and I stopped using the book completely. It was highly user-friendly. Now it functions like the book, except it’s worse. Unless you have made a bunch of bookmarks (which, I am not sure help that much), this app is as useful as a DSM PDF! I have now reverted to using the book again, which makes me really annoyed. Whoever thought this update was better, probably did not consult the users. It’s absolutely awful and not useful one bit. Only giving it 2 stars because I used to love this app. Please, just change it back!

    This app is VERY hard to use. Just had an update and it is now even MORE difficult. It is hard to get back to the main page-- often have to close out the entire app to start over. You can find a diagnosis, but not the criteria together with the diagnosis. The overall 2.9 star rating is well deserved. I just wish that I hadn't paid so much for it!!!

  • New update not better Dec 13, 2019

    By Sarah327!
    The old app was wonderful and user-friendly. In Dec. of 2019, they made significant changes and completely reconstructed the app. New app is very difficult to navigate and it’s been challenging finding terms and disorders. The search engine needs work as it won’t identify common mental health disorder acronyms such as ADHD, but you have to type “attention” so it could come up. Search also does not suggest any words when you search. There are also many parts of the sections in need of hyperlinks so you don’t have to spend so much time finding the criteria. TIP: Be sure to delete the old app, turn off your phone, and reinstall the app. I couldn’t have access to the criteria until I did this.

  • Cannot navigate Apr 27, 2020

    By chuckisgreat
    The previous version of the DSM app was perhaps acceptable. But this version is absolutely unusable. We paid a lot of money for this app, I expect it to actually provide an interface that lets you easily navigate to a specific diagnosis by typing in the name of he diagnosis. Do that here and it takes a long time to come up with “hits” and even finding the hit associated with the actual diagnostic criteria is challenging rather than some differential diagnosis mention for some other diagnosis or some table of contents entry. Speaking of the table of contents, it should be hotlinked so you can tap the page or diagnosis name in the table of contents and you should be taken to that page and the list of diagnostic criteria. This app is horrible now and I wish I could go back to the previous clunky version that would at least get me the diagnostic criteria.
