Frequently Asked Questions

Find out what Unbound users ask most about our products for Android.

How do I manage the subscription that I purchased through the Play Store using my Google Play account?

Subscription applications, including free trials, purchased through the Play Store automatically renew via a default setting within each user’s Google Play account. Users must disable this renewal feature within their individual Google Play account in order to avoid the automatic renewal of their ongoing subscription. Instructions on how to manage the subscription auto-renewal feature within your Google Play account can be found on Google’s Support page.

Unbound Medicine offers a 30-day free trial on select titles for users who download from the Play Store. This trial uses the standard trial and subscription parameters as created by Google. At the end of the free trial, the user’s Google Play account will automatically renew the subscription for a period of one year unless this feature is disabled. This charge will be applied by the Google. Google has its own policies regarding the purchase and return of applications purchased through the Play Store.

Home Screen

The home screen displays your available content. Some applications contain more than one content channel. If so, open the desired resource by selecting it from the list.


We recommend that you sync your device often to ensure that you have the most up-to-date content. To sync your device, return to the application’s home screen, then tap the menu option (which shows as a series of three lines) in the upper left corner. Select "Update Content", then "OK" once the content is up to date.

Jump To

To find an entry quickly and to avoid scrolling through an entire index, use the Jump To feature. From the Index screen, tap the "Jump to..." text box located near the top of the screen. Begin typing the word you’d like to find. The list will automatically scroll to the location in the index that matches the characters you type.


The Unbound™ Platform allows you to mark important information as a Favorite so you can return to it easily at any time. To view a list of your Favorite records, tap the Favorites entry at the top of your list of resources on the home screen. (You must have at least one favorite for the Favorites entry to appear).

Note: Tapping on the application icon will bring up a list of available content and your Favorites.

To create a Favorite, first navigate to the record you’d like to reference. Next, simply press the star icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

Once you press the star icon, you will momentarily see a message confirming which record you’ve added.

The highlighted star remains and indicates that the record is now a Favorite.

To remove a Favorite
, return to the record and simply press the star again, returning the star to blue (as above).

Cross Links

Unbound Medicine’s Cross Links feature enables you to access related content across the application’s resources.

This feature will only appear when linked resources are available. If a linked resource is available, you’ll see the Cross Links icon (opposite pointing arrows) appear in the tool bar at the bottom of the screen.

Tap the icon and you’ll be presented with a new screen which lists all available Cross Links. The icon appearing next to each entry identifies the linked resource. To return to the original resource, use the back arrow in the upper left corner.
