  • Completely useless

    By ihatehowitforcesyoutogivename
    Gives no useful information on any meds and horrible, time consuming interface. All users need is a list or safe medications to take while pregnant. Instead this app lists all medications with no quick filter for safe or unsafe so you have to read through every one. Hello, that’s the same thing as the internet. Even after clinking a bunch of them, you find 99% tell you nothing useful. They might have some noncommittal label like “no way to rule out harm to fetus”. I got the app for actual answers and they are so scared of saying the wrong thing that it says nothing. No value at all in this app.
  • Not worth the money

    By mishbarbs
    I can’t believe I actually spent money on this app, it should be for free. The scanner feature doesn’t really work because the database is small. The user friendliness is very low too.
  • Not completely accurate!

    By smartin33
    One of the first medications I looked up (spironolactone) was incorrect. It says no data available - but In fact it’s unsafe for pregnancy! Numerous doctors have told me this because it reduces testosterone and can affect the development of babies.
  • Great app

    By GandEmama
    I’ve used this app with 3 kids all breastfed until they were almost 2 yrs old. It has come in so handy many times.
  • Small inventory of vitamins

    By four and counting
    All of the vitamins I specifically purchased the app for are not even listed
  • Frustrated because of Inacuracy

    By LEbeling
    While looking through the medications, I click on one and the title when it pulls up the page doesn’t match. That’s super frustrating not to have it updated and accurate. I’m mad I paid $4 for an app that I really can’t use because the medications don’t align. This needs to be worked on and fixed.
  • Glitch??

    By Spaceycasey47
    I purchased this to make sure I’m making safe decisions regarding what I take while feeding my son. It worked great the first 24 hours. Now, I keep getting an error code and it won’t load anything, making it useless. I wouldn’t complain if I hadn’t spent $4 on an app that doesn’t work when I need it...
  • Great Info but crashes all the time

    By TLockett
    App needs to be fixed. Love the info when I’m actually able to get it but the app crashes constantly.
  • ? can we print info

    By Norasmmd
    It would help if info could be printed or forward by text or email
  • Not very helpful

    By BMB1994
    I am extremely sick with a cold and congested and unsure of what to take and when you click on symptoms it says on almost every one that there is no data probably compatible. What does that even mean?? Extremely frustrating when you just want answers on a holiday weekend. Wished I wouldn’t have bought it.
