Frequently Asked Questions

Read the most commonly asked questions for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch apps.

How do I manage the subscription that I purchased through the App Store using my Apple ID?

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

Unbound Medicine offers a 30-day free trial on select titles for users who download from the App Store. This trial uses the standard trial and subscription parameters as created by the App Store. At the end of the free trial, the user’s Apple ID will automatically renew the subscription for a period of one year unless this feature is disabled. This charge will be applied by the App Store. The App Store is administrated by Apple, Inc. and does not share the financial information of its users with any other entity, including Unbound Medicine. Only Apple can issue refunds for App Store purchases.

How can I purchase Unbound Medicine products for my iPhone, iPad or iPod?

Applications can be purchased either through the Unbound Medicine Website or through the Apple App Store. Products purchased through our website can be accessed across platforms (both iOS and Android devices), however purchases made through the Apple App Store can only be installed to iOS devices. Please visit our website for a full list of products offered by Unbound Medicine.

How do I create a username and password for my account?

Once a purchase has been completed through our website, a confirmation page will appear. You will be presented with the option to "Setup your Account" on the confirmation page (next to the product icon). From this link you will create the username and password, which will allow you to complete the download to your device.

If you should miss this link or prefer to create this information at a later time, please refer back to the registration email. You will receive 2 emails (a receipt confirmation of your purchase as well as a separate registration email). This email is sent once the purchase is complete, and contains a link to register your account. If you do not see this e-mail within five minutes of your purchase, please check your spam/junk mailbox. Please contact our support team for assistance if you do not see this email or have any further questions.

If you have a serial number, you can visit our redemption website to register your account.

If your purchase was made through the Apple App Store, the application should begin updating right away and will not request a username or password on your device. Your purchase is recognized through your Apple ID account. Instead of "Sign In", select the "Restore" option.

Can I install the software to more than one device?

Our products are licensed for use on one mobile and one tablet device at a time. Installing the software to multiple devices can deactivate the subscription or serial number.

How do I delete and reinstall the software on my iOS device?

1. On the homepage of your device, press and hold the app icon until all the icons begin to shake and an "X" appears

2. Tap the "X" above the program you wish to remove

3. After you have removed the selected title, press the Home button at the bottom of the device to reset the Home screen and stop the other icons from shaking

4. Open the App Store on your device and search for Unbound Medicine

I want to transfer from one device to another. How can I do this?

To transfer products you must have an active subscription. Users with expired subscriptions must renew the subscription to transfer it to a new device. Unbound products are licensed for use on one mobile and one tablet device at a time.

If you have purchased from our website and currently have a username and password, please follow the below steps;

  • Remove the product from your old device. You can do this by pressing and holding the icon until an "X" appears. Press the “X” and then allow to delete
    Open the App Store on your new device and search "Unbound Medicine"
  • Select the appropriate product for current users to begin installation. Enter your iTunes username and password to download. Once the program has been downloaded, open the application and enter your Unbound Medicine username and password

If you have purchased directly through the iTunes store, you will not have a username and password. Instead select the "Restore" option. If you should need to download this application again, please select the version you have previously purchased. As long as you are using the same iTunes account, iTunes will not charge you twice for applications that have already been purchased.

I received a message that states "Account in use." Who should I contact?

This message is generated when a product has been installed to more than one allowed device. Please contact the Unbound Medicine support team to resolve this issue during our operating hours (Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm EST).

Is WiFi required to download my software to my Apple device?

Yes. A wireless internet connection is necessary to install and update the software. Once the software has been installed, a wireless connection is no longer necessary. Our programs are designed to work efficiently in areas where WiFi is not always available such as hospitals, classrooms, and clinical settings.

How do I update the content in my Unbound Medicine product?

To perform this sync, open the program to its home page and tap the three lines in the top the left corner of the screen. From the resulting menu, select "Update Content." Please note that a wireless connection is required for any iOS updates.

On the following screen, click "Update Content":

Jump To

To find an entry quickly and to avoid scrolling through an entire index, use the Jump To feature. Tap the "Jump to..." text box located just above the main index and the keyboard will appear.

You can remove a Favorite in one of two ways:

1. Return to the Favorites record and simply deselect the star.

Cross Links

Unbound Medicine’s Cross Links feature enables you to access related content across different content channels within an application.

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 see 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.

  • Drag the touchscreen up or down to scroll
  • When viewing images, slide your fingers either together or apart on the screen to zoom in or out
  • Alphabetical indexes will list the alphabet along the right side of the screen. Tap a letter to jump to entries beginning with that letter
  • To follow your path backwards, use the arrow in the upper left corner
  • To return to the application’s home screen, tap the home icon at the bottom of the screen

Selecting an Index

Many resources are organized by multiple indexes, all of which you will find displayed in a list. To select a particular index, simply tap its title.

Selecting an Entry

To find an entry quickly, use the touchscreen to scroll or the "Jump to" feature as described above. To select an entry, tap its title.

Viewing an Entry

Depending on the content, multiple subsections may be available when viewing an entry. To jump to a particular subsection, click on the sections icon at the bottom right corner to see a list of available subsections. Tap the desired subsection.
