One of the leading orthopaedic journals, JBJS, has released a fully-functional app for searching and reading content from their four journals: The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, JBJS Reviews, JBJS Case Connector, and JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques. The app includes the functionality that would be expected of any comparable journal app: the ability to select articles, view full-text or PDF versions, search for articles or search within articles for terms, select favorites, and share articles with colleagues.  A nice feature includes the option to “Open in…” another program, allowing for easy download and transfer of PDFs into a personal archiving system or into an annotation app for future review.  The app is simple and easy to navigate without many bells and whistles.  The version I reviewed only has the current journal editions available, but hopefully archive data will be available in future.
