As noted in the iMedicalApps blog, Epocrates Essentials (usually $159) is being offered free for medical students if you download it before August 31st, 2010. Epocrates offers one free and three pay applications:

  • Epocrates Rx (free)
  • Epocrates Rx Pro ($99/year)
  • Epocrates Essentials ($159/year)
  • Epocrates Essentials Deluxe ($199/year)

The free version is available for iPhone/iPod touch, Blackberry, Palm, Android, and Windows Mobile. But according to the Epocrates website, the Essentials version is only available for the iPhone/iPod touch, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile. Android and Palm users currently have a beta version available. The iMedical Apps blog has written a review of Epocrates Essentials if you want another opinion before trying it.
