I have waited so long for this app and it was so worth the wait. It is the only acupuncture app out there that is exactly what is needed for points. It has the video explaining, where the location is, and even how to needle the point, and you can add your own notes as well. It still loads fast and looks great on my Galaxy Note 20 plus and I can even zoom in and out. I have deleted all my other \"point\" apps since this is all I need now. Update 2019 Still the best since my note 4 first review.

I am an acupuncture student and like many others was very excited at the prospect of having a handheld reference for the textbook. I am however frequently frustrated when using the app because images sometimes do not load. There is no rhyme nor reason to this. I thought this was an issue because I had the Note 4 Edge however even after upgrading to the Note 5 and making sure my software is up-to-date I am still experiencing these issues. I do sincerely hope that this is soon to be rectified.

Super helpful! A must-have app for any student or practicing acupuncturist! Most of the information available in the big, heavy print version, is quickly available here. I have tried the free week trial and I loved it. I have just updated to pro and I cannot wait to continue using it. Thank you, team, for making all this knowledge so accessible!!! I have used both iOS & Android app. I find the iOS version working more smoothly, but as an overall, I have not experienced technical issues.

Wonderful, I don\'t understand the negative reviews. It\'s extremely useful and has all features one can dream of. My only three concerns: (a) how to sync my point groups etc between web and app? (b) not directly evident that one time 30 bucks unlocks half of functionality and then another 30 for full. I happily pay 2*30 since it\'s worth it, just not clear from the start. Then (c) I don\'t see a way of contacting them other than leaving a review and praying that they explain how to sync.

I\'m not sure why I have to \"restore\" my purchase. Its asking for proof of purchase, its been years, I don\'t know where that is, especially because I\'ve switched phones since. So if someone wants to reply and tell me where I can find that, that\'d be great.

Im writing this because i bought the app in 2012 or 13... now they want me to pay for it again... it was supposed to be a one time enrollment. Now all the things pretty much that i had access to i can\'t unless I pay again. Thanks guys its now useless to me, strongly can\'t recommend. The app historically has had many glitches and finicky, just buy the text book, at least you will own that and \"It\" I must say say is Very Good. After all this time they could have improved the app instead of + $$$

The app isn\'t perfect (it\'s getting there however!) but I\'m elevating my rating to 4 stars due to the phenomenally responsive customer customer service that helped me through what was a bit of a rocky update process following their rebuild of the app. Keep up the great work. Keep responding to your customers feedback and refine this app even more. My one suggestion is a search feature. It would be an amazing tool to be able to search indications for points by key words. For instance, points that treat hypertension or clear Wind, etc. This would become the hands down go to app and easily deserving of 5 stars if you could find a way to incorporate something like that. Edit: Turns out I\'m just blind, there is a search feature! 5 stars.

Terrible. Bought it in Sept 2018 for my android devices after having it on iphone. Worked really well for a couple of months and then i couldn\'t log in or access any of it. Contacted support but no help was offered. I\'m so fed up I want a refund!!

I previously wrote a poor review. This is a happy update. The customer service has greatly improved. The app has reloaded properly today, and seems to be much faster, and all the pictures show up when they are supposed to. The app is now much more robust, and I can easily use all the features, which wasn\'t the case in the previous version. Thank you JCM for fixing the problems.

Love the App but Freezes a lot Whenever a point opens, it usually freezes for a while and takes forever to load or won\'t load at all. I have to swipe left or right for next point, wait for that to load, and then swipe back. Wastes a lot of time and is not useful for clinical practice. I\'m a student on Galaxy S5. Please fix ASAP....
