I have been Skyscape use for long time and have used many of their products.

Content is great and i think no one can beat them in terms of quality and the customer support.

Just installed the Skyscape app and got 3 products for free. Really liked the Archimedes Medical Calulator app, Just Amazing.
Thinking of buying 5MCC and many other. Was looking at the subscription prices so i m not sure, but skyscape usability, use interface and depth of contents are the best. Though its subscription base but its cheaper and worth it. Subscription will keep my content updated all the time. Skyscape products are like buying iPod over any other mp3 player. They are simply best. Go Skyscape!
