    Easy to use interface and full of all the necessary phrases to survive as a Doc in ZA (Or any multilingual Dr). Still in infancy but can see this app is going to become an essential part of a Drs arsenal beside a formulary and OxHand. Keep up the awesome work and looking forward to future versions :-D
