  • I expected better

    By Bereanone
    The app functions very well and is easy to use. I expected from the price for it to be very useful. But despite its easy function, an appalling lack of diagnosis limits its use. I keep having to use other apps to locate diagnostic criteria for psych ICD-10 codes. It is simply not complete. What it does have is helpful enough to make accurate diagnosis, but once you are done with common ones, and need a little help with less common, this often falls short. Bottom line? Functional but not worth it.
  • Unintended purchase/Won't even work.

    I purchased this app in error, however I cannot even open it. I asked iTunes for a refund and they state this app does not qualify for a refund.
  • Diagnostic criteria is helpful, but no videos as advertised

    The videos that are mentioned are "not compatible with [my] device" (iPhone or iPad).

    I guess I'm just here on a heuristic journey. I proffered 5 stars up for this app because I felt humbled to behold the excesses of DSM 5 in the palm of my hand. My 256 GB iPhone 7+ is now replete. A.P.A. for God sake, I knew she was in backlog too … put her to work straight away fixing the video playback "F" up?
  • Spanish language supported?

  • Incomplete

    Latest update does not include 10/1/16 changes to ICD-10 codes (e.g., OCD changing from F42 to F42.2). Search function does not always work well in locating certain diagnoses. This app is expensive- please hire your app coders accordingly.

    I wish I would have read the reviews prior to buying this. It gives you a good overall view of the disorders but it is not good for clinical use. Definitely not worth the cost. I will be attempting to get a refund.
  • Weak and limited

    Highly disappointed with this purchase at this price. It does not contain the same level of information found in the hard copy of the DSM 5. Invest your resources in the hard copy.
  • Inadequate

    By Hickory Mom
    I thought at this price there would be more info. But as it's title suggests, it's ONLY the list of diagnostic criteria, no codes, no differential diagnosis, no appendices. So... pretty much just a very expensive study tool. Trying to get a refund on this, it's just not enough and still need a physical book on hand which defeats the purpose of having an app!

    Very disappointing. Good for learning about criteria. Poor for when you already know the diagnosis, and just want to quickly drill down just to the diagnostic code. Maybe it needs a section that is just names and codes, like the Pocket Guide to DSM-4. I can't believe significant computer programming talent went into this project.
