Excellent reference App

Amazing how much information is at your fingertips with this App. Almost all of the same information that you can get from is accessible here. An indispensable bioinformatic tool for biologists on the go.

Great - for gene lookup only

Excellent for getting information on a per-gene basis. Details, primary refs, sequence, regulation, etc. Essentially everything you get on, nicely formatted for iPhone. One issue is that you can't search by a compound or reaction. It's a pretty minor issue, and no bugs encountered yet
