  • One suggestion Apr 10, 2018

    By Qwerty9870
    Great resource but I would like to make one suggestion: make the “save” feature available whenever you view an article. As it stands now if there is an article I’d like to save (after clicking on the link on the homepage for example) I have to go to search then News filter, type in the article name, then click on the article, and then the share icon in the top right hand corner is available to save to favorites. And if there’s a link in the article itself you have to repeat the whole process. It’s very time consuming so please change this feature. Thank you!

    Great app for continuing education(CEUs). There is one fix that is needed ASAP for the continuing education section: when a course is completed and evaluation done there is only a link to the activity tracker, but no way to get back to either the main home page or to education section. Please add a button/link to allow seamless transition with this. Also, add an option to change text size within the app for the visually impaired. Thanks! 👍

  • I want to be clear May 11, 2019

    By AndrewLinares
    I am like this app a lot, but there are some things that are holding me back from using it daily. In my previous review I mentioned that there was no way to send articles via text message and there was no way to save articles for later. A developer responded that there was a way to save articles for later, which is true except in certain circumstances. If you search for an article or click on any article after opening the app, you can save it for later. However, if you get push notification about a story that you might like and you click on it, it does not give you the option to save it for later. I would use this app much more frequently if these two features were in it. I currently almost don’t use it at all because I can’t share through text message. Other than that it’s a great resource and I hope it continues to improve in the future

    Dark theme is required. Would be nice to see System default, Light , Dark theme options. Or auto shift to dark theme at night hours.
  • Medical Rotations Life Saver Mar 30, 2019

    By Asst. to the Regional Manager
    As an MS-3 on the cusp of wrapping up my third year, I have to say this was my GO TO reference source for clinical rotations. A lot of people will say resources like UpToDate and Epocrates are the gold standards, and while they are incredible, neither possesses the ease of use, scope of information, or clinical tools that this app has. I have a paid subscription to those other sources through my school, but this is essentially the only reference I use and it’s completely free for anyone. I would 100% recommend this app to anyone and you better believe I won’t be without it next year, as a resident, or as an attending.

  • Ads have become completely intrusive. Aug 21, 2018

    By Dudeepic
    I used Medscape throughout medical school and it quickly became my go to resource. I’ve used essentially ever major medical app and this was hands down my favorite. Now the app will not allow a section of text to be ad free. I’ll scroll down while reading and a new ad will insert itself between the text. This is exceptionally distracting and interrupts reading. Why can’t they just keep the ad banners down at the bottom? There is already one there anyway? I probably will be uninstalling Medscape, which is very disheartening because I’ve been using it for so long. In their quest for ad space they have lost someone to advertise to, and I’ve lost a great resource. There’s no winners in this scenario. It was a good run while it lasted and I’ll always be appreciative towards the app, but I can no longer support it.

  • Ads make it very annoying! Oct 25, 2017

    By MD Mauri
    I first downloaded Medscape when I was a medical student. I have used it many times in the past, but now I tend to open the app as a last resource. Why? Because of the annoying ads! I’m thinking about paying an uptodate subscription and say farewell to MedScape for good if they don’t remove the ads. We are medical professionals seeking information for the good of our patients, not to pass the time because we are bored. I hope that clarifies my disappointment and reminds you of the purpose of this app and any other source of medical information. At least come with a solution like an advertisement-free version that is not free...

  • Usefulness of the app has suffered greatly Jan 6, 2019

    By 2buyRnot2buy
    1. The app has been valuable because of accurate and extensive information. But the app cannot be used efficiently with the presence of excessive and advertising. 2. The app presented valuable information quickly to both lay users and medical professionals. With the hands, the app seems unprofessional and could easily be taken by Lee persons as a website primarily intended to sell medical products. You have greatly cheapens the app. 3. If you need to monetize the app, then consider an ad free version that professionals in the interested lake people could pay a reasonable fee for as an in app purchase.

  • A must-have app; can be better Jan 5, 2020

    By Hadikm
    I am a medical student and I use Medscape on a daily basis; it’s the quickest and best way to look up or check medical terms. Lots of functionality. Great. Please update the app to have multi-task and split-screen/overlay on iPadOS. It’s very important for me to simultaneously take notes or to have my reference book besides Medscape and see both. Also being able to have multiple windows is really useful. Thanks

  • Very useful, but used to be better. Feb 14, 2020

    By EV-traveler
    I often recommend that people use the Mayo Clinic site if they don’t have Sci/Med background, but I send them to Medscape if they do. Unfortunately, both the website and the app are now harder to use than they used to be. It’s not that the information isn’t there, it’s that they’re forcing you to click to the next page and that makes hard too read and share. It used to be possible to forward a chunk of text to people who needed information. But unless you want to make a career out of cut and paste, it’s quite difficult now. This all gets back to the fundamental questions facing the business of medicine today; should an informed citizenry be a goal, or should profit?. Having said all this, I do rely on this site, I just wish it had a little bit more accessible structure.

  • Long Time Invaluable Resource Apr 15, 2019

    By Brenrick31
    After 15 years as a Mental Health Clinically Designated Interventionist I returned to 4 years of Nursing school. Now, 10 years later, my professional focus has shifted but not my ‘go to’ resource! Medscape has remained an invaluable resource for both maintaining CEU as well as cogent and valuable contemporary research articles. Research presentations are so well vetted that they can be shared with colleagues as well as patient/clients. Thanks Medscape for being a long term friend

  • Wonderful app...destroyed by ad barrage Oct 14, 2018

    By Аиоиамыд
    I love this app, i have used it almost every day in clinical and hospital situations. It is updated daily and provides accurate information. The only con to this app is the near constant barrage of ads when you are trying to actually read the wonderful information contained within. Every time you scroll to read the next paragraph blam you are hit with another bit of advertisement for some medication...

    What I felt is that for all drugs a doctor cannot remember its adverse effects and interactions with other drugs. This is a good base to help know interactions before prescribing any new drug. I recommend to use it. And I recommend the developers to include newer drugs also.

  • iPad OS Multitasking Support Oct 18, 2019

    By Erniedr
    Love the app. Use it to use as a reference when researching a topic or simply refreshing information during my clinical rotations. Specially like the ability to have the database offline. Sadly can’t have the app run side by side another app. This would be so useful as I could be taking notes on one side of the screen and reading Medscape on the other. Hope this feature gets added in the near future.

  • The ADS! Hate it! Oct 4, 2017

    By PAjazzyJeff
    Edit: Still can’t deal with the ads, now it’s on the bottom of the green and five times randomly in the text. I don’t use Medscape as frequently as I used to but it still remains an annoyance. Once again, I’d pay for an ad free experience. I love Medscape and I use it daily but I cannot deal with the ads anymore. They are intrusive and so irritating. I'll gladly pay a fee to use this app without the ads. It's taking me a lot longer to find the info I need in a hurry because of these adverts. Won't someone think of the healthcare professionals??

  • A bit of bug maintenance overdue Jul 6, 2019

    By snoo-snee
    I tapped on developer support instead of writing a review because reviews are sometimes unfair, but the link didn’t work. The reason I am trying to reach the developer is because the notifications are currently worthless. When you click them and it brings you to the MEDSCAPE app, it never brings you to the story/info from the notification. Those notifications are what interest the readers and remind that the MEDSCAPE app exists and they. have been broken for quite a while.
