I am so grateful that this exists 5/5
I've learned so much from this app — something new every single day — and it gets better and better with every new version.
Figure #1 5/5
By Timber 🌶
THE BEST EVER. Not only do I learn so much from following the cases and medical professionals, but figure 1 set me up with an RN mentor. I am so thankful to have this access for free.
Educational and free! 5/5
Excellent app. The pics are amazing and the presentation has you learning as you scroll. Love it
Great app for new info 4/5
Good app for any healthcare professional looking for up to date cases
Forever Learning 5/5
Love this App! I have learned so much and will continue to learn as much as possible.
Impossible to open from email 2/5
Great idea but needs more work to make useable and functional
Instagram for the medical field. It's an awesome learning app!!
It's challenging .
Useful and fun 5/5
A great app to learn from and teach with. I've learned a lot and seen a lot of really cool cases I would never have had the opportunity to see without figure 1.
KUDOS TO fig1 5/5
I am a retired RN and truly wish this ap was available while I was working. Every day I find myself caught-up in this ap reading and learning everything from dental issues to ekgs to trauma. The descriptions and comments are always instructive, lively and at times, humorous. If you are at all connected to the world of medicine, you need to download this ap AND actually use it.
I love learning from this app!
Great collective doctor mind app 5/5
By Marianna oftalmic
Idea, design and usability of the app are really very nice.
Collective mind of experts helping each other in quick patients' diagnostics in any location on Earth - that's how I see it. WIshing the team great success.
Awsome I love this app 5/5
By Mystical earth
The only down side to this app is the lack of language translation. Many wonderful cases but if you only speak one language it's no fun
Please update with a translator
Great Learning App 5/5
I like using this app to see interesting medical cases from various medical professionals.
Verification is not possible unless you are an MD or RN 1/5
After 2 years of figure1, I am so weary that I am not even able to click on posted html article links in figure1 (they only allow "verified users" to click on link to take you to article; God forbid you try to to post an interesting case). Weary of trying to get verified by sending 23 peer-reviewed articles (all cited in PubMed). No, not a Physician/Nurse, etc. No, not a 1st year student (all students bet verified but, alas, I am old). However old, I still think that I could potentially learn from articles posted and and maybe even contribute in my area of study as Sr. Research Scientist in Neurobiology for 10+ years at WUSM (top 2 or 3 in med schools?). Looking to delete my Figure1 account please? Can't wait for your revenue model to be replicated in new app that I can jump on.

Unusable: requires account creation 1/5
Can't use app without creating an account. Terrible and unusable for this reason.
Home screen app for me. 5/5
By Benjamin Stone
This app has proven to be very useful both in my practice and as a form of continuing education, very helpful.
Love this app 5/5
Change profession option needed. 4/5
It's a great app I like to look at to get tips and hints and have a place from where I can begin learning about a disease, but I wish it offered the option to change my profession.
I started as a basic university student when I downloaded the app, but I am now an AEMT and plan to go to med school. I don't want to get a new account because the one I have has a lot of cool cases, but I can't comment.
This app is great for discussion among medical professionals. Lately I've noticed that it takes some effort for me to find cases in English. Perhaps it's time to make an option to sort cases by language.
Great app, but it freezes every few minutes and then it takes a while to find where I was.
Great but has flaws 3/5
Great app! Just wish the feed didn't reset to the top every time I left the app, can be frustrating scrolling and searching where I left off. Also liking comments causes the app to crash.
Love it but.. 4/5
By Cara gymnast
I love it but I wish anyone could comment because I saw somethings in an X-ray that nobody in the comments has said yet. And I wished I could comment but I was unable to. Other that that I love the app.
Lost in translation 4/5
Love the app but really wish it had a translation feature!
We need it 5/5
Hope you guys allow the app in Sudan and other developing countries. It would help us a lot . Thank you !
Great feed, unless you leave it 4/5
Everything about the app, from the concept to the content is great, but there are several major bugs hindering experience.
When I navigate outside of the app and return, the feed crashes and restarts at the very top, losing my place. It happens every.single.time. This also happens when I leave the feed to see the actual case. Leaving the feed = crash.
Love it 5/5
One of my favorite apps, social media for medical professionals 🙂... Good job!!
Nursing student 5/5
As a nursing student, this app provides me with a challenge, and helps me learn something new everyday. It's a great app for medical professionals!
Excellent resource and learning tool 5/5
Great app idea, great international community and great interface. I love how the design and features have changed since the beginning-- I just miss being able to scroll through a photo set on a case from the main feed without having to click on the case itself. Spectacular tool though, I've expanded my knowledge exponentially! Thanks for your hard work.
As a high school student and aspiring doctor, this app really gives me a sense of direction in what field I might want to pursue.
Really great 5/5
It's useful for medical student to learn from and allows curbside for practitioner. Quizzes for learning was never intrusive. Working with their customer support was simple and painless. 👍🏻👍🏻
Great learning tool 5/5
By Kameron Dee
Great learning tool for all.
Great App 5/5
Love this app so much!
It's fun, educational, and interesting! As an RN is great to see things that I may not always see in the place/location I work... and as a nurse in neurosurgery, it's also fun to share some of the great things I come across!
Instagram for medical professionals 5/5
This app is amazing. Great for medical professionals and students. It's so interesting and I've learned a lot too!
Please, for the sake and sanity of the rest of us, make a version of Figure 1 for Paramedics/EMTs. I have found myself not using this app because there are always Paramedics and EMTs commenting on everything whether pertinent to their training or not. Even if the person posting specifically directs a question to medical students as a teaching moment, there will be another know-it-all Paramedic that can't resist showing the world how much they think they know. Why would any medic/EMT need to know how to manage a a pt's hospital course? They don't. Many agree with my sentiment at my hospital and I'm sure they do at others as well.
Great idea 4/5
Amazing idea. However, after scrolling down and looking around, I noticed that there isn't much stuff relevant to EMTs and Paramedics!! I'm an EMT and would love to see more EMS content. I understand the importance of nursing competency and med school students, but EMTs and other ancillary staff also deserve some attention! Again, great idea, just would love to see ancillary staff of all types included.
Fix it soon! 4/5
Ever since the update it crashes every time I open it. Disappointed. I love this app!
Updated review. 3/5
By john mayer fannnn
I'm a PA-S currently on my rotations and I loved this app when I first downloaded it with all the cases and the conversations that accompanied it about differentials and different treatment approaches. I'm not sure what has happened now, but whenever I look at a case and look to see the comments all I see are a bunch of "wow, that is so cool!" Or "my son-daughter had that happen to them". This is an app meant to educate and learn not a place for your Facebook stories/comments. I'm really disappointed in the quality of conversations about medicine now. I liked it much better before...
Great app - glitches make it miserable to use! 4/5
I love this app. It's an app that I spend time on daily. Ever since the most recent update a few days back, it is not worth signing on. Every time someone comments on a case you are following, it pops up in the banner mode and kicks you back to the beginning, or throws you out of the case you are reading. I read one line about 30 times because it kept throwing me out. Extremely frustrating! I gave up and signed off. And I have all notifications turned off when this happened. Please FIX!
Love the app but... 5/5
I love the app. Educational and interesting. However, since the update 6/3, I can't open it anymore! It crashes immediately. Once the bugs get worked out, I'm sure it will be great again.
Not working well after latest upgrade. 1/5
Loved this before the update. Please fix the bugs! Pictures aren't loading!!
By Rt abdull
Best app ever
Interesting but not great for learning 3/5
When I downloaded this app I was under the impression that the posts would be clinical cases for readers to make guesses to diagnoses and treatments from a poster who already knows the answer AND can explain it. However, this app lets anyone post, and the good posts ( like the ones I was just referring to) get buried under nurses or medical students asking for help solving their personal clinical issues...I feel like there are plenty of other forums and online resources that are better suited for those purposes. As a medical student,myself, I would get more out of this app if it was regulated to some extent (maybe and up/down arrow to get rid of unwanted post?). Another idea: have a section of the post be the answer to the question. If the poster doesn't have an answer, they can't post.
Love, love, love 5/5
It's the Instagram of medicine! I enjoy how it's set up by specialties. Wide variety, great pictures!
Fantastic! Addicting. 5/5
By Eighties' Girl
Not for the squeamish. A must have for the medical professional! This app is for serious professionals, and should be respected, as the cases in here are real patients. Continuous learning and teaching environment.
Need bug improvements 3/5
Love the app! However, when reading stories the app goes blank and pushes me up on the feed when new posts are put up.
Kudos: AGAIN! 5/5
Your "Search" restoration cemented your place as the #1 App for Healthcare Professionals. Thank you.
