    I recently bought a new Dell Axim not realizing that ePocrates costs $50 for this platform. Are there any free ePocrates-like program for the Pocket PC out there?

    Thanks,
    P

    ePocrates costs $50 for any platform. The basic version was free, but the professional version costs.

    You just spent $250 on a Pocket PC. Why not spend $50 on a quality drug program? Trust me, it's well worth it!

    I think Mobile PDR for the PocketPC is free for medical students. It's not the best drug reference, but it's not bad.

    Students can get 1/2 off anything from ePocrates with a student code. The pdf containing the details is too large to upload here, but email me and I'll forward it to you (I'm inbetween systems, so posting it on the web will be a hassle). [email protected]

    And even $50 is worth the cost.

    It's not free for everyone, but your school may have a subscription to mobileMICROMEDEX, which is much like ePocrates. I get the software and free updates through a license owned by my school's medical library. It runs just fine on the Axim X5 with plenty of memory to spare.

    are there any other quality free programs that are worth getting for the wards?
