Seen the JAN app yet?

Roger Watson, Editor-in-Chief

Ever wished you could read JAN 'on the move' on your iPad or iPhone? Well, now you can. A link to the JAN app is available on the JAN webpage.

The app is free to download and the full text of the articles from Early View through to those in issues of JAN can be accessed if your have a personal subscription or your institution has a subscription.

What does the JAN app do?

Speaking only from the iPad perspective - and I welcome comments on the blog from users of other platforms - the app appears in your Newsstand and appears as a facsimile of the familiar JAN cover. Opening the app reveals a selection of options: Early view; Issues; and Saved articles. There is also a tool for selecting the appearance of the articles and an information button. Accessing issues and Early View articles is intuitive and easy. Early View articles are available to read immediately and issues have to be downloaded. If you see an article you like and want easy access to it in future, there is a star to the left of the article which you can press to save it.
