The PubMed app, developed by the National Library of Medicine and available on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android, offers several ways to search the free PubMed archive of more than 22 million references to biomedical literature from bioscience journals and online books. Users can ask general questions, search for keywords in specific fields and read abstracts of articles. The iOS version lets users search in 13 different languages. There's also a function called the PICO search, which stands for results based on patients, interventions, comparisons or outcomes. PICO is available on the main screen of the PubMed app and uses a fill-in-the-blank and menu format. Users also have the option of providing feedback through this feature, with a feedback link included at the bottom of the search page. PubMed is free from iTunes.
