Here's what some of our junior faculty had to say about this app:

"In an era of medical students and residents being used to instantaneous access to information, I am glad to see a mobile application that brings top tier articles to this group. While it is easy enough to say that students should be familiar with primary sources and reach to them for their medical management, there was not enough in place to allow this group the ease of access to which they are accustomed. There was a time when clinically relevant information was not available during rounds and there are still many people who operate with this mindset.

The application was a little difficult to setup, but I am sure this process will continue to improve. As this app continues to improve, adoption will pick up and people will become used to questions being answered at bedside, especially if evidence based medicine is to be brought to the bedside. For example, from this month's issue (October 2012) of the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation, the question of the role of hemoglobin A1C in pulmonary arterial hypertension can be answered using the latest information. As more people adopt smart phones, mobile electronic delivery and bedside reading will become standard practice."
