New England Journal of Medicine introduces iPhone app

Yesterday, the New England Journal of Medicine released a shiny new iPhone application, and for a limited time you can download it for free.

The NEJM This Week app (link to the App Store) offers a selection of procedure videos from Videos in Clinical Medicine, images of medical conditions from Images in Clinical Medicine, audio reads of Clinical Practice articles and journal articles published online in the last seven days.

After a short test-drive of the new app, physician-blogger Bryan Vartabedian, MD, writes:

I normally access NEJM remotely through the Texas Medical Center Library and that requires a couple of steps with WiFi or my Verizon card. I have to say that since downloading the app this morning I’ve spent more time reading NEJM than ever before. It’s simply a matter of availability. It’s remarkable what you can accomplish during 10 minutes of downtime.

If you don't have an iPhone, don't worry. You can still access the NEJM content on the go using your iPod Touch.
