By far the worst app I have used in more than three decades of emergency services work. It regularly fails to start, hangs up during the login/loading shifts function, it has drop-down lists that students can add to (and over the course of a term, these lists grow to hundreds of options, making it nearly impossible to scroll through, so students just add a new option each time, making the lists grow longer, making it harder to scroll through ...). If offered a choice between a ruptured spleen and Fisdap, I would choose to have a ruptured spleen. Fisdap shot JFK. My cat walked across my keyboard and made a better app than Fisdap. If you sin a lot, when you die you end up in Fisdap. If you divide by zero, you get Fisdap. Fisdap washes your grandmother's cast iron pans with soap - and lets them soak. An infinite number of monkeys with infinite time and infinite typewriters will eventually write all of Shakespeare's plays, but Fisdap was written by maybe four monkeys and a gerbil over the course of an afternoon. I went to the zoo once, and a monkey threw Fisdap at me.
I enter my data from the app when I’m coming back from a call and or in between patients at the hospital and when I type an entire report and HIT SAVE, I log into the computer and go to my fisdap account, my narratives are gone as If I have never even typed one. Some show up but most of them disappear so this app is not very helpful. I now have to rewrite 7 narratives because of this problem.
Supposedly you’re able to do data entry offline. Every time I try, I get a notification that I’m offline and can’t do anything. Why even HAVE the app? The website is bad enough, don’t waste your time with app!
NEED TO FIX NOW. APPS SHOULDN’T GET WORSE AS IT GETS UPDATED Among the other things that have been reported and need to be addressed, in the most recent update you removed the option to go to the desktop site within the app. This makes no sense, considering the lack of options within the app, not to mention the fact that it will crash and won’t save anything in that assessment. So put the option back in the app to go to the desktop site. You added nothing to that side menu so it is completely empty anyways and your “minor bug fixes” was removing what I use the app for most... to put some of my info in until it stops saving then I go to the regular site to fix everything. PLEASE FIX SO I CAN USE THIS AGAIN. NEED TO DEFINE WHAT IS REMOVED IN YOUR PATCH NOTES AND DON’T CALL IT A “MINOR BUG FIX”
Inconsistent with web version. Often times doesn’t work
Haven’t been able to use the app in my iPhone. For some reason it just keep loading forever. Have no issue starting up on my iPad. Another con, I’ll write a full narrative on the app on my iPad and then open up the web version on my iPhone and my narrative will be gone. I’ve had to rewrite countless narratives because for some reason the app doesn’t save them. (And yes, I’ve clicked save. I click save ten times while writing my narrative and click save again when I finish).
This companion to the desktop version had very limited access. You can only view shifts and make attachments (pictures) for later use on the DT version. This can be done by taking a picture with your camera and uploading it later. Although it does cut out the middle man and apply the phot directly to the site. Being able to manage shifts should be a basic function but you can't. No patient data can be input and no skills can be annotated. This makes the app, by in large, useless to most all users.
For the love of all that is good, please make scrolling lists in alphabetical order... looking and scrolling through an incredibly random medication list is so time consuming and frustrating. Also, narrative screen will not bring up a keyboard or let me actually add any text. App is getting better I would love for it to be fully functional as it would be very helpful to be able to chart live-time!
Being using this app as a required part of my medical program. It’s consistently slow, consistently forces me to uninstall and reinstall to fix issues, and is missing many features from the equally terrible online version of the software. This software causes me more of a headache than learning the actual material from my schooling. Can’t wait to graduate and never hear the word FISDAP ever again. To future students-good luck, lol
So when I have to an spend absurd amount of time away from things that do to re-enter due to their short comings I have a problem. I have lost ALL confidence in their product and I think my paramedic program has as well. Hence them making us do paper copies as well as Fisdap data entry. I will tell future pre-paramedics to avoid any program that deals with Fisdap. I will also avoid any CC-P program that uses fisdap too.
I downloaded the app for facilitation of inputting field shifts and it works perfectly fine no issues at all, I was skeptical since other claim the app doesn’t load, but for me it was been working fine no issues at all.
The last version of the app was a step in the right direction. This version makes me want to use the IO drill on my forehead. It takes forever to load, (if it does) now I can’t even type a narrative for a PT.... Jones & Bartlett, since you have bought Fisdap all there have been is issues. You charge $250 for a book you think you guys have enough money to make a app that we can actually use.
The app is painfully slow. Regularly taking up to 10min to open. Any list are not in alphabetical order, not even concept order such as sinus rhythms together, just random order. The only reason to use the app is because their website doesn’t have a mobile version and is difficult to use on the phone.
Before the update, I could at least navigate the app. It was unreliable because it wouldn't always upload my shift documentation when it said it had, but I could at least get it to open. Now, even after uninstalling and reinstalling the app, I can't get past the first "loading shift list" screen. The app is now 100% useless.
Don't waste your time on this app. Basically you can look at your schedule, that's it! Who needs to upload an attachment through an app when you can upload to the main site just as easy. App should allow you to view quizzes and podcasts, use check boxes to edit shifts and utilize the scenario practice sheets. This app does none of this.
I wish I could explain in words how awful this app from Fisdap truly is. It takes at least 5 minutes to open if it doesn't burn out. Once it is open, good luck putting patient data in and expecting it to stay there. Narratives and skill data vanish. I hope you read this Fisdap. Please step your game up with this app.
While most of the app is limited to shift viewing, it's nice to be able to attach files or images from my camera to shifts, which can then be used for preceptor sign off. Looking forward to more features soon.
No different than the last version. Only good for viewing shifts. I mean I don't get how this is helpful at all. The reviews speak for themselves, this app isn't worth the space on your phone and maybe one day Fisdap will give a crap about its customers and actually make a product worth using.
Can't do anything but view your schedule. Can't even view the calendar or request/drop shifts. This app is so useless that it actually provides a link to the desktop site in the app. A mobile version of the site would be a good start. Don't waste your time on this app.
The older version was virtually useless because of its extremely limited features, so I was really excited to see an update hoping it would finally be a functional app. No such luck. There are tons of glitches. Oh well...
The app gives you the option to write a narrative. Seems like a great idea! Until you log onto the website to edit the narrative, only to find not narrative is there. When open up the app after that and refresh, BAM! No narrative there either. Only thing this is useful for is entering basic vitas and skills. Also using the website on a mobile is painful due to screen sizing issues. All in all, a complete and frustrating mess
Frustratingly slow, the slowest ever, I don’t understand how anything can be so slow in 2017. Even the website is slow, there is just no reason why it has to be so slow. And the service is a paid service too.
might be useful if the app would load. better chance of winning the lotto then getting anything done using this app. save yourself the frustration, don't even open it. could be nice if they cared. disappointed.
Why does it take more than 5 minutes for this app to even load? Oh my god. That and half the time the info entered doesn’t save.... Heaven help those who have to use this. Save your time and just use a computer
Enter skills & patient care information—with or without an internet connection! At long last, with the Fisdap app, you can enter patient care data right from the hospital or ambulance. Whether you’re on WiFi, cellular data, or stranded on the side of a rural highway with no connection to the outside world—you can document that patient encounter with just a few taps on your mobile device. Hand the device over to your preceptor to have them rate your performance and sign off on your shift. Shift attachments and map navigation to your scheduled shifts are, of course, still available in the app.
