Great job! APA, you never cease to impress me—no matter if its a new edition of the DSM, or if its a piece of technology. I really appreciate having all the diagnostic criteria items just a click away, and I LOVE how I can bookmark the diagnostic criteria of disorders. Wow, I'm amazed. Thanks so much (I don't need to carry that giant book around anymore)! =)

A necessary evil - Still nothing done to improve the app after 11 months It's frustrating that the app is unusable in poor Internet connection areas because of the persistent license check -- which we paid for. I like that the criteria text can be enlarged at will. A few things to note, though. (1) For an app, the price is prohibitive... costing the same price as the actual book... (2) that you cannot highlight, underline, copy and paste, or annotate -- which almost tempts me to get the book so that I can interact with the content.

Lacks full text Beware, this app only provides brief descriptions of the diagnostic criteria. For the price, you would think one would get access to the digital version of the complete text - very misleading. Hope an update will provide this one Smart phones or via computer as companion to this app.

Very nice Comprehensive. Great to have the resource in your pocket!

Useless without wifi Good app, but can't use offline. I work in a rural area without wifi in many areas and this app is useless in those conditions. Irritated that I will now have to spend $ to get book as well, entirely defeats purpose of app, also not useful for those of us serving in rural areas. Very disappointed.

Great Now please provide us with the full textbook of DSM-V, it will be greatly appreciated. Update: cannot acess app when on airplane mode! It require authentication every time!!! What's the point of having an off line resource if you cannot access it off line?!!!!

Gerald Quimby

Handy but ... I very much like having this available on my smartphone however the interface leaves a lot to be desired. Navigation appears to be one way with no back to the index without restarting the app. This is not acceptable and I hope that an update to this app will soon be released resolving this major deficiency. I expect an app with a $70 price tag to perform better than this.

DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria Just got it! Looks good!

Warning: prohibits use when you are offline! Unlike most apps that download books, magazines or articles, this one treats you as unlicensed when you are not actively online and prevents opening or using the app. You have paid and you are licensed, but cannot use it.. This therefore is a legally dubious restriction which is not prominently described in the marketing. Maybe a massive demand for refunds wouldpersuade developers to conform to app publishing norms and expectations?

Phil Lavine

So much lighter The first negative I've found so far (have had it for an hour) is that going from the text/code level back up the steps you came down is tricky, hitting the back arrow closes the app down and restarting seems to be the only way back to the broad category level. The way to do it is by hitting the side marker which takes you back to the next hierarchical level up and then you can go back up w/ the back arrow. It'd be nice if they fix this, but I'm getting used to it. I haven't yet found any way to adjust settings either Update: I've had it for a few weeks, and I've now found a few problems. Firstly code numbers are missing in s a few places such as "major neurocognitive disorder" and I've had probs in a few other places in finding the actual codes, requiring that I return to the book. It is also annoying, in that it requires on line verficiation before it'll start -- every time!, This is troublesome if I don't have a good connection (like in my office, parts of the hospital).

Okay starter app App has generally easy access to content. However, plagued by numerous problems. User interface is NOT Android-native, so hitting Back button acts out of line at times. Splash screen adds several seconds, so launching the app can feel like it takes awhile. Crashes on startup approx 1/4 of the time. Cannot select, highlight, or copy content. The app refuses to work offline, insisting that it contacts the Internet for a license check, meaning you CANNOT use this in clinics or hospitals with poor network connectivity.

Easy to use app for diagnosis Nice to have assess to the DSM on my phone..

Pedro Velez

Easy to use.

DSM -V Diagnostic Criteria Thank you APA for this app. A good update will be though to identify certain criteria that a patient / client displays and from them the app to suggest different possible diagnoses. In addition, linking this app to practical therapies (opening only to professionals) could be of tremendous added value. Still, it is a 5-star app. Congratulations!

Great reference Great portable reference for diagnostic criteria. Only drawback is that you must be online to access.

Amanda Millner

Incomplete Just a desk referance, not detailed, for that price I expected the complete DSM-5. I want a refund this app was not what I wanted even slightly.

Chad Lewing

Great reference Great portable reference. No complaints. Put out more apps, APA.
