I can't live with this kind of memory leak, but I'd like to have a drug reference. Anybody have a recommendation for a replacement for epocrates? I'd like something free, but I don't know of any others. Everything else I've seen is $40-$80. ideas?
We have many physicians running Epocrates on their devices. It is a huge program (in BB Terms) at 9mb. If you use the thread to optimize memory and avoid using the Application Switcher (Root cause of memory leak). And ensure that you close applications properly you should be fine. I am sure there are alternatives but I have not explored.

Good Luck!
