Customer Reviews

The Merck Manual Consumer Edition 
The Merck Manual is vetted. Google searches might not be. That can kill you.
 
My go-to medical app! 
I'm a mom as well as a caregiver for my parents. This app makes it easier for me to research medical questions and to learn more about surgical procedures and treatment plans recommended by doctors. I always use it to prepare a list of questions before important medical appointments, and it's been really helpful. I also use it to check symptoms, which helps me decide whether or not to call a doctor, go to the ER or watch/wait at home. I really LOVE that it is completely free of advertising. So many other medical apps/websites are cluttered with ads and/or force you to click so many times just to read one article. This has no annoying pop-up ads and no barriers to finding the information I want.
 
Forget Google, Get the FACTS from Merck Manual 
This use to be available only for professionals, now this knowledge is available for consumers! This is my new go to for everything medical!
 
Be Prepared 
I love that this app is so easy use to find information on medical emergencies, medications, procedures and more. I'll be using this all the time and so happy I was chosen to review it
 
Blogger dream. 
The Merck Manual is well known as one of the key reference texts for internal medicine physicians. But more and more moms and families are using to help with minor issues. This can also help you tell your doctor more about issues you have. The Merck Manual App allows you to use medical and mom info to get things back on the right track.
 
A Resource for Credible Health Information 
I appreciate how easy it is to find information (including suggested treatment options) regarding health conditions when someone in my family is not feeling well.
 
Medical information at this mom's fingertips 
I love how easy it is to use the Merck Manual app. Having the Merck Manual on my phone provides me peace of mind because I can have medical information in my hands, even when there’s no internet or cell service. If you’re a mom, Merck Manual is a must. Not only can I search symptoms, injuries, or emergencies, but I can go to the doctor better prepared thanks to the Merck Manual Consumer app.
 
Merck 
After update , the app is unusable. Is much too complex to use. Tried to find info on "vertigo", couldn't get info. Too bad as I deleted this app and will find another medical info app that is simple and easy too use.
 
App shuts down during searches 
The app no longer works. It shuts down whenever I conduct a search on a topic.
 
Ummmm 
Didn't download
 
The app is not working 
The app is stuck on the on the downloading screen and never works for both versions
 
Doesn't work any more 
The latest update screwed up the app, now it won't even start up.
 
Essential App for Adventurers 
This app is easy to use. Medical topics are described in consumer-friendly language. The informative section on first aid, now stored on my device, is invaluable for hikers and other adventurers who might experience sketchy Internet access.
 
Quality medical information available offline 
It's great to have all of this information immediately available regardless of where I am. Even when I'm in the woods and out of cell service I can still get the information I need.
 
Dr. Mom's Favorite App 
As a mom, I have always relied on the big red Merck Manual Home Health Handbook. Now, with the consumer version of the free mobile app, I have all that information and more with me wherever my family goes.
 
Medical Information App You Can Trust 
I can trust this health information because it is written by medical experts and is reviewed by an independent editorial board. Plus, the app does NOT contain advertisements. How cool is that!?
 
Excellent Resource App 
This app is very easy to download. Perfect for every consumer who wants to have medical information at their fingertips. Great for abroad travel.
 
Check son's conditions 
We use this app to check conditions our son may have, in addition to calling the doctor. It's nice to be informed as a parent. Merck Manuals provides trusted information.
 
Great for parents 
Love this app. It's my personalized information source for questions, about my son and various medical issues. It's great to have so much medical info on my phone even when I'm not online.
 
What you need to know about this app 
This app provides the same info as the trusty Merck Manual my family relied on since I can remember (it's still on the bookshelf BTW). Truly great to see this new app in the app store. - Free (What?? last time I checked it was like $20) - No Ads (not a "lite" version either, the real deal) - It's all downloaded to your phone (no wifi or phone signal needed - and thats when you likely need it the most) Also, downloaded the Pro version, its free as well and gives you the next level info to be a real know it all.
 
High-quality app 
Very straightforward and easy to use. It's great to have the knowledge of the entire Merck Manual in the palm of my hand, regardless of a wifi connection. The educational videos are very interactive and excellent quality! I recommend this app to anyone who wants their medical info on the go.
 
Not loading 
The app not downloading the content after the update :(
 
Very useful 
Great update. Excellent videos. Simple UI. Practical news items.
 
Content did not load 
There is no content in the app, it's just a empty shell. There was no need to update.
 
Won't download 
Was a great app and now not so good because update ruined it
 
Waste of time/ content not able to download 
Waste of time/ content not able to download
 
Does NOT download 
App does NOT download and open with iOS 7.0 or higher. Merck Manual is the standard, but NOT this app.
 
Merck Manual 
This app used to work well; the update will not download. I'm sure there will be a fix soon . . . at least I hope so!
 
Uncomplete product 
Won't download. Useless.
 
Awesome app 
Works really well and does what it's supposed to do. People complain that the app is empty, it's a lot of data give it time to download. When I first opened it it was empty for me too, I left it be and now I have the full book or whatever you call it and it works great.
 
No updates in TWO YEARS! 
This app should be updated more regularly with new medical information. I rarely use it anymore and just Google a subject.
 
Merck Manual is Awesome! 
The updated Merck Manual is even better than before. It has what looks like many thousands of entries in its index. The descriptions are clear and thorough. It's a GREAT medical reference book. Get it!
 
Very good book 
As a medical student, i think it is very useful. especially for the people who have little specific medical knowledge. i like it
 
Excellent manual 
This app is well worth the price; you get more than your money's worth. It is very informative. I also own the hardback edition of the Merck Manual Home Health Handbook on which this app is based. This app in my iPod touch is a handy addition - a 'portable supplement' - to the hardback edition.
 
Excellent but only in English 
Well done. I like it . It s very similar to' my real Merck manual Book. I hope I can have the italian version soon .
 
Good 
Having problems with this app opening
 
אפליקציה מצוינת לידע אישי 
מתאימה גם לעוסקים בתחום רפואה משלימה כגון רפואה סינית
 
Online edition is free 
Not worth the price unless you use this everyday. Basically just reformats the info found on their website like most of the wikipedia apps.
 
Not useful for a doctor 
Not user friendly, research by keyword is not well elaborated and the content is too basic and not helpful for a doctor. Inutile pour un médecin, . Mauvais achat de ma part.
 
The information is wrong 
First thing I looked up was "snakebite" (I'm Australian) and the info given was wrong. It didnt direct to apply a pressure bandage which is the most critical step and the onhe that will save your life. It certainly makes me wonder about the rest of the information provided. I submitted a complaint and its been a week and still no response. You would certainly like to think that an app for First-Aid doesnt have any errors and if it did, then the authors would be right onto it. This is not a cheap app and I expected so much more!
 
Again, amazing. 
Thank you for making a non-Skyscape Merck. This is amazing. And it's no sign up or wifi needed. Also for the price, it's great. 10 stars if I could.
 
Well Done!! 
This is one heck of an impressive app. Very well done and full of terrific information!
 
Look no further. This IS the Medical Reference App to buy. Period. 
The Merck Manual Home Edition should be on everyone's bookshelf! It explains all diseases and medical information in simple and easy to understand terms. This is a great reference for everyone. I have used the Merck Manual Home Edition for many years. I am so happy to see that someone FINALLY decided to make this available not the iPhone! *Explore the Index contents *Browse by Sections *Injuries and Emergencies section, teaches you How To and what to do in emergencies (choking, frostbite etc.) With Photos. *Global Search by key words *History, tracking to review the sections you have already read *Favorites, to bookmark the sections that are important to you. *Random bottom to take you to random sections of the book This application has everything you need. And more importantly it is fast. If you are looking of a medical reference, look no further. This is the one to get!
 
Buy it now 
Great app. Much better than looking up info in a book. Easy to use and well worth the price. You won't regret buying this.
 
Truly indispensable 
(Full review at Medtapp.com) What we love about this app: source credibility; the full content is on your iPhone or iPod Touch--no Internet access required; price (one-time charge of $9.99, no subscription needed)--updates should be free; easy navigation and neat interface; easy search and sharing; bookmarks/favorites; a dedicated Emergencies & Injuries button; random medical information is a nice feature. The buzzword "must-have" has been used to describe a number of applications, but in this age of burgeoning healthcare costs and patient empowerment, The Merck Manual - Home Edition app is truly indispensable.
 
Thank you!! 
Great reference tool, easy to navigate, tons of info at a reasonable price!! Good job Devs. I refuse to buy from skyscape but now thanks to you I can have this; Now if you came up with The Tabers medical dictionary I will buy from you. Everyone don't hesitate, just buy it. U wont regret it.
 
Unbelievable! 
It is simply incredible to have this much information wherever you go. There is so much content here it's unbelievable. I was skeptical of spending 10 bucks, but after doing it I'm very happy. Get this!
 
What a great tool! 
This is a great medical application/companion. Indeed, a great portable medical encyclopedia. I find it extremely useful, and now can't do without it. Great!!
 
Great for students. 
As a physical therapist assistant student this app is awsome. I recommend it to any student in the medical profession. I can study things no matter where I am.
 
Do not buy it 
I am a doctor and made a mistake to buy it. If you are in health care profession don't wate your money.
 
Great App!!! 
I use it almost daily, great app, great info presented very well.
 
Great!!! 
Very well explained. Very cheap taking into account all the information you will have in your hands. This is the Home Edition is not intended for Doctors, there is another version named Professional Edition for that audience.
 
don't waste your money 
In the past I have owned hard copies of the Merck Manual and they were wonderful. And that is why I didn't think twice of spending my hard earned money for a The Merck Manual - Home Edition. But don't waste your money because you can get the same information if you just Google it and not be out $9.99.
 
Great book!!! Incredible Deal 
I not only use the Merck Manuel Home Edition on a regular basis, but I recommend it often. It is an excellent source of medical information written in language so that the average lay person can understand it.
 
In app purchaseplease 
Not that I complain about the app. It's pretty good & I use it a lot. However, after buying the home edition I realize that I do need the professional one. But how I suppose to upgrade. So would you please add an option so I can upgrade home edition to professional one. Thanks   
 
Use it every day 
As a research nurse working with many populations and rare diseases, I frequently come upon diagnoses and disorders that I have not worked with before. Having the Merck Manual in my pocket so I have it at my fingertips at all times has been invaluable. Having the favorites icon allows me to store those things I come upon most frequently in one place and access them quickly. It is concise and very readable and is accessed almost daily. Best of all, you do not need internet access which is an excellent bonus and critical to my usage.
 
The Medical Reference to Have 
This is one of the must have apps in my judgment. Used it when my child got sick on a trip. Now has full iPad support making the app super. Thanks to the developers for such a nice job with such a useful reference.
 
THE GOLD STANDARD: GREAT ON I PHONE 
The Merck Manual for decades and decades has been THE reference tool to learn about any illness. It is the gold standard! Now in the digital age and the incredible iPhone age, the Merck Manual has arrived as an App on the iPhone! It is well done and easy to read, and very thorough! We all care about our health! This App is a gift at 10 bucks! It is thorough and the best App on the topic! Please invest in this App would be my advice to everyone! You will be wiser and healthier!!!!!!
 
Good resource 
This is a good resource and has been useful to me more than once. You could probably dig out the same info with some Google searches, but this app makes it so much easier!
 
Needs update 
Needs an update to take advantage of the larger screen size of the iPhone 5.
