Based on the Current Concepts in Joint Review (CCJR) live meetings, this app serves as a mobile version of the conference with information about speakers, topics, and the ability to download full videos.  From the home screen, the user can select a talk from an extensive list of speakers and topics (about 125 lectures) from the 2011 Spring meeting.  Selecting a particular lecture includes an abstract summary of the talk, as well as the option to immediately download the full video (WiFi not required).  Most videos appear to be 6 min in length and download in 1-2 minutes using 3G.  The other modules in the app reorganized the data by Topic, as well as by Speaker.  The app also includes a search feature, which appears to only search the titles of individual lectures, but not the associated abstracts.  Overall, there are few negative remarks that one can make about this well-made, well-organized app that offers over 100 brief lectures on relevant topics by leaders in the field. Currently, this app is offered for free, and would be useful to any surgeons, residents, or fellows who perform total joint arthroplasty.  The App Store summary suggests that future updates will offer premium modules with expanded information at a price.
