Not as pictured
MAY 30, 2009

"The interface was not the same as pictured in the ad for the Storm. It will not work in landscape mode so locating the drug is difficult, can only type 1st letter then scroll. Difficult selecting drug once you find it in the list with touch. Clumsy, unbound medicines davis guide was much better, but not on this platform. There has got to be something better!!"
