Launch of iPad apps for the health sector

Two new iPad apps have been launched for healthcare professionals.

The Lancet

Elsevier's general medical journal, The Lancet, has launched an article-based navigation app making it easy for users to find the articles they need via their iPad.  Users may annotate and share articles and create alerts and bookmark favourites.

The app provides access to articles from The Lancet, The Lancet Oncology, The Lancet Neurology and The Lancet Infectious Diseases.

The Lancet app is available from the iTunes app store.  Some content is available for all viewers, while subscribers to the Lancet will have access to all published content.

For more information see the Elsevier press release.

Oncology Times

Meanwhile Wolters Kluwer has released the iPad app of Oncology Times providing access to the latest news content.    The free app provides full text access to a mobile edition of Oncology Times.
