    "I'm not a Doctor, and I don't play one on TV either. I've never struck a "Doctor Pose." This App looks pretty impressive to a lay person, but who knows what the experts would think? I do love that you have to be at least 17 years old to download App, though I guess for the aspiring Doggie Hower's of the world, you're just SOL. It got's nudity! "

    "UpToDate is a really great app if you frequently need medical information at the push of a button. However, if you don't need information on a weekly basis I wouldn't suggest this product. It was very helpful for me because I am a nurse but you must pay for a monthly subscription for this service. With all the free information on the web these days I don't think it is worth it. "

    "This is the Rolls Royce of medical apps. With up to 10 million downloads, this has been battle tested to the extreme. There isn't much i can't do with this. I can consult Dr's. and get my questions answered by a huge user base. I can look up drug interactions, get medical news, step by step directions, the whole nine. I can't do better. "

    "Super convenient for anyone taking pills. I got this app for my grandparents and it really helps them out. They always used to keep notepads filled with notations for what they need to take and when and logging when they did just to make sure, but this app just makes the whole process so much easier."

    "Honestly, I am a bit of a hypochondriac, so this app is perfect for me. It has all of the medical information I need, plus some handy tools like Symptom Checker. I highly recommend it if you are similar to me, but probably a waste of a download for most people."
