    Sooooo I fired off a question to Richard Kerris about the state of Epocrates on Twitter and got a great answer: "We are working on getting them back"

    This is a great thing for the medical community that is sticking with or will move to webOS. Plus it shows HP is making the moves to get the big name apps over to webOS...

    Lets hope it happens!

    heh, I upgraded to 2.1 and don't have and can't get epocrates anymore.

    I didn't even notice till yesterday. I don't have epocrates on my pda/smartphone for the first time since 2002.

    I do hope we get them back, but I won't get too hopeful.

    long live lexicomp.

    Lexicomp is good... But Epocrates does have a great presence. I loved the app... Very quick & almost no loading.

    . . . and pill pictures! (Lexicomp's biggest weakness, IMO)

    epocrates mobile site and my ipod touch fulfill my epocrates needs.

    besides, I used palm Os and windows mobile for years and never needed/used pill pics then.

    While Lexicom is a very good & comprehensive drug database, the key thing about Epocrates is that the basic app is free.

    yes, its free. But come on now. I love and loved epocrates just like the rest of you, but many of us are physicians. I am done with training now. We (should) be well compensated.

    buy lexicomp, purchase an ipod touch for 200, or use the epocrates mobile website for free.

    Well Medicare took away all my re-imbursement. pays me 15 dollars for a two hour appointment. Want to save my money for retirement and vacations. Plus why does Android, RIM, iOS have it free?

    $15 for a 2 hr appt? What kind of physician are you, may I ask?

    options include:

    mobile epocrates site

    buy an ipod touch, for 200, use mobile hotspot or free tether on your palm device

    or switch to a different platform.

    listen, I have had epocrates on all of my devices since 2002, and it was and is a tough pill to swallow losing their support, but webOS is such a powerful and convincing platform for me that it supersedes epocrates. I hope hp regains their support, but in the meanwhile I'm not gonna sit back and wait. I use lexicomp, purchased a 3 yr subscription (which can be transferred to ANY device with ANY platform) with their 25% discount, and find it to be a very powerful program. It works. Webos works. And right now, epocrates doesn't on my phone, except for the mobile website...which is pretty good- actually better than the beta software we had.
