New Mobile Application for PLoS Medicine

Take a look at this recent post from the Carolina Curator, a blog that covers the History of Health Sciences, about an iphone application for PLoS Medicine.

The Center for Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School in collaboration with the Public Library of Science (PLoS.org) have created a free iPhone application for PLoS Medicine, the open-access journal publishing important original research and analysis relevant to human health.

To give it a test drive, simply visit the iTunes Application store and download it to your iPhone or iPod Touch. To launch the application, simply touch the PLoS icon and you are immediately taken to a screen that contains the most recent and viewed articles, with an option to search for anything else from the current or archive issues using your touch keypad.

Other features include:

  • Clear article layout – with options to view the PDF or view online
  • Favorite and share – straight from your phone
  • Access the full archive – never be without the content you need again
  • Get further information – about PLoS in general and PLoS Medicine specifically
