Insights Orthopedics is a comprehensive and visually stunning news and research aggregator for orthopedics.  With a recent redesign in October 2014, their interface has become even more streamlined and visually appealing. Using their specialized search engine, the app collects orthopaedic journals, videos, full-text articles, news, podcasts, images, clinical trials, and association information and presents it in a clear and functional format.  The app looks and feels like the “flipboard for orthopaedic surgery.” The initial landing page presents the various modules, including journal clubs from various institutions, leading journal articles, videos, upcoming events, bookmarks, and industry.  A simple swipe of the keyboard quickly scrolls through the various articles and videos permitting continued browsing of abstracts.  With the new features, thousands of institutional library subscriptions have been adding, permitting full access to the article for users.  The intuitive user interface includes the ability to bookmark resources for off-line browsing or share links via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, email, and SMS.  One of the apps most versatile features is the Aggregator function, which works as a search and includes many pre-populated key terms as well as the ability to type in your own words.

Overall, this app has the look and feel of a “top app” with a number of useful features for any orthopaedic surgeon or trainee.
