This app is certainly a step in the right direction for peer-reviewed journals by allowing surgeons to search for and access content on their mobile devices.  The app continues to evolve into a more robust and usable form that suffers from occasional glitches.  The menu allows the user to browse abstracts in each journal edition and search for content using “watch words” or standard author/title/year/abstract search techniques.  The abstracts worked well for me, and allow for a review as well as the option to email the abstract to a colleague. However, the watch-word functionality was not working properly.  Once the kinks have been worked out, this may be a very useful app depending on how easy it will be for users to view and download material.  Until then, consider using other RSS feed apps, such as BoneFeed, to access the same content.
