NEJM This Week

THIS APP IS A LIMITED TIME OFFER; PLEASE CHECK TO MAKE SURE IT IS STILL A LIMITED TIME OFFER!
I saw this App and downloaded it immediately. The NEJM is a medical journal publicised weekly. This App takes a selection of articles from that week, and uploads them too your Ipod/Phone for free! It also utilizes the different information formats, and includes some videos and audio lessons.
It is great for keeping up to date with some interesting news, however it is very advanced stuff and as a medical student I prefer the image section, as it has lots of photos of physical signs.
There are a few problems with the App, for example in the images you have to click on article, then the image, then the caption button to get to the caption, and when you get the caption you cannot see the picture at the same time.
Also, although you can view the articles offline, you do need to have loaded it while online to do that; you cannot automatically download them. To change the font size you need to exit the articles and go to more information, where you can change the font size.
On the App store it does say that this is a limited time offer, so whether they include the same content for a small fee in the future that remains to be seen. While it is free however it is well worth a download.
