Upgrading the MDCalc App to v1.1

Note: This only applies to users who already downloaded the app this first week! (Thank you thank you thank you!) If you’re newly downloading the app (or you delete the app from your phone and then re-install) you should not have these issues.

Update Saturday March 12: Some people are reporting favorites removed with this update. We’re looking into this.

As we were preparing to release the app outside of the US, we had to make some changes to the app to distribute it internationally. These changes unfortunately broke the download mechanism and so our early adopter users may see a blank screen briefly. Very sorry!

To upgrade:

  1. Download the new version of the app from the iTunes App Store (still free!)
  2. When you open the app you may see a blank list without equations. Do not panic.
  3. Go to the Settings icon in the upper right hand corner, and swipe down to the “Reload Calculators” button and tap it, and then hit “Okay.”
  4. Once all the calculators have downloaded, you’re as good as new.
