What's New in Version 1.6
Optimized for 4-inch retina displays
Fixed Facebook sharing issues
Added additional sharing options
This is a great interface for following ACS journals. The ability to pull up full text articles is also very useful. However the inability to push those articles out to other apps or even email is a huge detriment! Having to email your saved ASAPs to yourself from this app, open them in a web browser then save to your paper management software is actually more work. Additionally a swipe to delete function for your ASAPs would simplify the workflow as well.
I love this app it's great and extremely helpful staying up to date on recent publications. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the most recent version has no keyboard when you go to search. I believe this is just a quirk with this version but it still is a very poor feature of the app now.
Info on the go
I love this app because it keeps me updated on the new researches that are being done anytime!
