iPhone Medical Software by Unbound Medicine

I got to use the application at the Apple Store today.
While I could disable the WiFi, I could not use the EDGE service to browse the Internet.
Using WiFi, I found the applications very responsive. Perhaps most amazing was the ability to choose a letter from the index for a topic. Despite the small size of the letters, I was amazed that I could choose the correct letter between A and Z, 9 out of 10 times with my index finger! Having used a PDA of some sort for almost a decade, I would sworn that a stylus would have been needed.The ability to enlarge the text will be appreciated by many who have graduated to bifocals.
While the iPhone does not permit loading applications the way Symbian and Windows Mobile do, you can use the cellular or WiFi connection to view books online. While not as convenient as non-connected access, it also means that the references should be updated centrally as with any ASP system. Let us know how what you thinkSV
