PubMed On Tap searches PubMed and PubMed Central to find, display, and import reference information and pdfs of the full article (if you have access privileges). You can search your personal reference library, organize your references in groups (static and smart), and email references from your device to yourself or others in a form suitable for reading or importing into desktop reference management applications. Many features are optimized for reference retrieval and management (advanced boolean searches, search for Full Text or Free Full text, recall recent searches, etc.).
Note: PubMed sometimes mistakenly lists a restricted Full Text article as Free Full Text, and PubMed On Tap identifies them as such. In these cases, you'll need access privileges to read the Full Text.

What's New in Version 2.7.5
iOS 8 support
Helpful for quick review of literature
I find myself using this app and interface when I am trying to find an article when I am away from desk. The app provides for basic searches in a simple text environment.
As with most similar apps you can email yourself a link to an article of interest. The drawback is that you have to email each article on at a time.
The summary shows the article title and full text link. Journals need to up their support to mobile users to provide readable interfaces for on-the-go readers. For now I will probably read the abstracts in the app without trying to read full text.
Excellent quick referencing
Very useful app to search for references instantly. Although provides only 20 references with the free version, most of the times it is sufficient for quick referencing. Using a wise combination of key words would eliminate chaff and get you the top 20. Free full articles are a bonus. Works seamlessly with the institutional VPN for full article access of the subscription journals. Highly recommended.
The programmer of this app apparently thought that the user would want to manage references one at a time. For example the user cannot add multiple references to a (static) group. I see no reason for this limited thinking.
