Mobile Access to the American Journal of Sports Medicine
The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) has done an excellent job producing another of its reputable journals onto a mobile platform. The American Journal of Sports Medicine app has allowed journal subscribers with easy- to-use access of the magazine in app form. The app has many advanced features such as searching for relevant topics within all issues of the publication, allowing users to save favorite articles and sharing journal articles easily through email. These up-to-date app features makes this app an excellent tool on the iPhone and iPad. In addition, the AJSM has started to build video and audio content which can become an important educational tool for viewers in the future. My only criticism that I made with other apps from the AOSSM is the reader software used to view the journal articles is slightly clunk and doesn’t allow you to make notes or easily manipulate the journal articles. However, once the developers build more video and audio content into the app it will quickly become a must have for anyone in the field.
Overall a very useful Journal application with advanced app features.
