Whenever I launch my application I receive constant updates without the ability to cancel. How can I fix this?

Please check the available storage space on your device by going to: SETTINGS > GENERAL > STORAGE & iCLOUD USAGE.

(For older versions of iOS this section is labeled SETTING > GENERAL > USAGE.)

iOS automatically deletes content when storage is low, resulting in constant updates and missing content. We recommend leaving at least 200 megabytes of available storage space on your device so that your applications can install completely and content will not be erased.

I am missing content from my application. How can I fix this?

If you are having trouble viewing the application’s content on your device, we recommend that you un-install/re-install the application to ensure that it functions properly.

To do so, please follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the icon until all the icons begin to shake
2. Press the "x" above the program you wish to remove
3. Make sure the iPhone/iPad/iPod is connected to a Wifi network
4. Open the App Store on the iPhone/iPad/iPod and search for “Unbound Medicine, Inc.”
5. Select and download the application
6. Enter your iTunes user name and password when prompted
7. Open the program, then enter the username and password you created for the application

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 hold 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 listed as free 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. If you should need to download this application again, please select the priced 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.

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

Yes. A wireless internet connection is necessary to install and update the software only. 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.

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 in only seconds during our operating hours.

Phone: 610-627-9090 and press 1. Monday - Friday, 9AM to 5PM EST.

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.

Can I access Unbound Medicine products on my computer?

View a complete listing of our product companion websites here. Please note that access to companion websites is based on a yearly subscription that must be renewed after the first year to maintain access. Applications will also not download as an icon but can rather be used to their own personalized website.

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

Once a purchase has been completed, a confirmation page will appear on your PC. A link will be shown to prompt you to activate the account. 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. 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 mailbox. If this does not work please contact Support for assistance.
