Leading scientific publisher Springer has just launched a SpringerLink mobile app for iPhone and iPod Touch. The app is free to download from iTunes and provides unlimited access to over 5.4 million documents (including abstracts, book and journal covers, and more than 127,000 open-access research articles) spanning every area of science, technology and medicine.
When you come across an article or website you’d like to read but just don’t have time for, save it to your Read it Later list. You can then read it whenever you have a moment, wherever you are, even without an internet connection. Search, sort, tag, adjust font alignment; Read It Later even remembers where you stopped reading and will pick up where you left off.
And it’s FREE!
