Hi. I've loved my iPhone since day one. However, I still carry my Palm OS based PDA to work for ePocrates. I've tried ePocrates Online and Unbound Medicine's UCentral clinical suite and have found both to be frustratingly slow via EDGE or even WiFi when compared to Palm. Because of this I've created a petition to encourage Apple to support 3rd party medical software that will run directly on the iPhone. Please follow the link below if you would like to sign it and leave a comment for Apple/ePocrates:

Update -- Epocrates on iPhone

Hello Iphone Medicine Blog readers!

While it’s not currently possible to download Epocrates software to an iPhone device, we recently announced that the free Epocrates Online web-based drug reference is now available in a format that's optimized for the Apple devices.

Simply point your Safari browser to http://m.epocrates.com/iphone to access continually updated monographs for more than 3,300 drugs.

Apple recently announced that in early 2008 software developers will be able to begin to create applications for iPhone devices. We are excited to explore the opportunity to offer our mobile products on this new platform as well.

Best wishes!
The Epocrates Team
