PubMed On Tap Lite App Reviews

16 add

Good starting but very too short, too small

the number of items is too small : 5

Most unnecessary

As search result number is limited to 10, this app is as useful as a car without . Dont even bother installing it.

Nerve racking commercial

Function is ok. Who takes lite version knows the Limits. But its really unendurable with the Lot of commercial in below!

I found it great

Helps you keep on top of the publications. Useful in my opinion

Pubmed on tap



Easier to use and faster loading than the PubMed website on the iPhone.

Nicely done (and useful!)

This frequently-updated app makes it a snap to find information on PubMed when youre not at your computer. E-mailing tagged references to yourself or others to be imported into a reference management application is a nice addition, too. People who use PubMed seriously should check out this apps big brother, PubMed On Tap, which can return an unlimited number of hits.



Not enough citations

This could have been a useful app but they chose to annoy users with no more than 10 citations. What is that ever good for?

Like the idea

Too many banner adds for ripoff sites

Crashes on launch

Crashes instantly on launch. 100% repeatable. 64 GB iPod Touch 3rd Gen. with iOS 3.1.3.


Works a lot better than the Medline apps that are on here. Actually shows you the whole abstract. Consistent results. A little confusing with the menu items that dont do anything, and still have search boxes that always return "no results". Just scroll down to "PubMed online search" and search there.

Poor interface

Ive been searching medline since the 80s and ive never come across a more opaque interface.

limited thinking

The programmer of this app apparently thought that the user would want to manage references one at a time. For example the user cannot add multiple references to a (static) group. I see no reason for this limited thinking.

Helpful for quick review of literature

I find myself using this app and interface when I am trying to find an article when I am away from desk. The app provides for basic searches in a simple text environment. As with most similar apps you can email yourself a link to an article of interest. The drawback is that you have to email each article on at a time. The summary shows the article title and full text link. Journals need to up their support to mobile users to provide readable interfaces for on-the-go readers. For now I will probably read the abstracts in the app without trying to read full text.

Excellent quick referencing

Very useful app to search for references instantly. Although provides only 20 references with the free version, most of the times it is sufficient for quick referencing. Using a wise combination of key words would eliminate chaff and get you the top 20. Free full articles are a bonus. Works seamlessly with the institutional VPN for full article access of the subscription journals. Highly recommended.
