Just installed Epocrates OTA on my BB7130e and it works great!
A few things:
-you need to have a username and password for PDA Medical Software. Medical & drug software for Palm & Windows PDAs
-Once you have a username and password go to get.epocrates.com to install it OTA (currently the only way to install the program)..
-The website states that you need 9MB free, but I think it takes up less space on my blackberry.
-It takes a long time-took 55 minutes. The good news is that you can do other things on the BB while it is installing in the background. No need to reset after installation either.
-Website states that OS 4.1 and higher are supported. Help via Webchat said that OS 4.2 was needed. I have OS 4.1, and had no problems with installing or using the program.
1. Great first version of a fantastic program.
2. Clean interface.
3. Fast drug and drug-drug interaction search.
4. Setting up regular updates is easy (done at installation).
All in all, I am glad that Epocrates is available for the Blackberry. I can leave another gadget in my desk drawer.
I am using the free version. There are packages (at PDA Medical Software. Medical & drug software for Palm & Windows PDAs
) that do more for a fee, but for a basic program to look up medications and drug-drug interactions, this is perfect.
