The Cochrane Library is owned and produced by Cochrane, a global, independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is the leading journal and database for systematic reviews in health care.
Cochrane Review authors search for and collate the existing primary research on a topic that meets certain criteria; then it is assessed using stringent guidelines, to establish whether or not there is conclusive evidence about a specific treatment. Cochrane Reviews are internationally recognized as the highest standard in evidence-based health care.
Features exclusive to the Cochrane Library app include:
• The best evidence chosen by the Cochrane Editor-in-Chief in a monthly issue format.
• Downloadable Cochrane Review content for reading offline.
• A bookmark feature for creating your own special collections of Cochrane evidence.
• Abridged Cochrane Reviews for the best possible reading experience.

Ratings and Reviews
Accessing content from the Cochrane Library has never been easier than with this very elegant iPad App. Navigation between areas is fluid by simply swiping or tapping the screen. Equally, revealing charts, graphs and links is simple and instantaneous. Font sizes can be adjusted making it visually accessible.
A direct link at the beginning of the articles leading to the 'Conclusions' or 'Plain language' explanation would be advantageous.
Finally, if you use an iPad and the Cochrane Library the two go hand in hand.
Not worth the disk space
Don't expect much from this app. Issues aren't updated on time anyway.
