ACS on the move

It's the trendy thing to do - create an iPhone app, or application. So, it's no surprise that the American Chemical Society would follow in the footsteps of other publishers and make available an inexpensive app for readers of readers of their journal. The app allows users to receive a customized stream of research content and news on an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch device. ACS Mobile launched on March 15 and has an introductory price of $2.99 in the iTunes store. The Alchemist assumes, however, that price does not give you unlimited access to JACS, C&EN and other favorites.
