All the drug information in the app comes straight from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Using iPharmacy users can search drugs by trade-names and ingredients;
"This app comes highly recommended to both users and administrators of pharmaceutical medications or drugs. Doctors, pharmacists and nurses can all benefit from this app." said Jack Yang, the CTO of SigmaPhone LLC. "As administrators of different drugs, such fields need to be up to date on the latest drugs and be able to compare them to others. The various guides in iPharmacy should come in handy for such information gathering and comparisons."
The app even allows those in the medical field to e-mail recipients all the info available in the guides. There is also a section for taking notes and being able to copy and paste information to other apps or documents.
