Military Medic Book Collection app review



If you are part of the military we have a tool that has been designed specifically for you where medical first aid is concerned. The Military Medic Book Collection can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and claims it is actually the world's biggest collection of military medical books. Whether this claim is true or not there is no denying that this app holds a massive amount of content, which can prove to be incredibly helpful.

Brush Up on Medical Knowledge

Here's your chance to brush up on your medical knowledge and possibly end up saving lives. You don't even have to be part of the military to use this app as anyone can read through this and learn. There are more than 27,000 pages' worth of medical first aid information as well as illustrations. This app will allow you to be prepared for all kinds of medical situations. This is a collection of all the military and government made books and field manuals that refer to military medicine and military first aid. There are more than 25 book downloads available including first aid, field sanitation, family emergency medicine, combat lifesaver, and the army survival guide.

Once you purchase the app you won't need to make any additional in-app purchases, everything is included in the one price. The app has 4.5 out of five stars from users who describe it as excellent, practical, and informative. The app hasn't been updated in almost two years, with its last one offering speed enhancements and more content.

Making Use of the Books

The way the Military Medic Book Collection works is that once you purchase the app you will be able to download the books you are interested in. Remember all the downloads you make are free. This means you won't have all the books stored on your device at one time taking up all kinds of space. Within each book you can do searches, use the bookmark tool, view the table of contents, check out the book chapters, and view the thumbnails of the pages which are built-in.

The actual reading experience is pretty basic, and it's not overly engaging thanks to the way it is presented.With this app though it's really about the content rather than how it looks. Use the bar along the top of the screen to make use of the features and tools; there aren't many but the few offered are useful.

Pros and Cons


  • The app offers more than 27,000 pages of text and illustrations regarding military medical first aid
  • This app can be used by those in the military or anyone wishing to learn about first aid
  • There are a few simple tools such as the bookmarking tool, and the ability to view thumbnails of each page
  • You can download individual books to your device rather than the full collection


  • The user interface is dated, dull, and not engaging in the least

Final Thoughts

The Military Medic Book collection app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to stay on top of all the latest first aid information from the military. The app is informative and easy to use but it really falls short where the user interface is concerned.
