Minim listing of Med Abbreviations

This is a relatively good listing of abbreviations specific to medicine. However, there tend to be more omissions than you would expect for a paid app. The database is severly lacking depending on the specialty such as Ob/Gyn. My biggest gripe is that you can't add your own abbreviations. This seems pretty intuitive for a paid app given some people make up their own abbreviations. This has to be in the next update, don't buy this app until that feature is added or else you'll be regreting the purchase.

3/5 stars

Useful but

Great if it was free but for $$ it lacked some basic Latin used in Rx and hospital orders

3/5 stars

Most common definition first

Two things. I did search for a very common abbreviation. om, which in most cases is otitis media. It came up but I didn't know that. It was the last definition. Suggestion: Put the most common abbreviation first in your list. Also with your search, don't differentiate between small and caps. It can be a minor nuisance to remember to put the caps on. Otherwise, this app is better than some I've seen and your price is extremely reasonable. Most abbreviation books cost $14 and up.
