The Skyscape platform works really well on the Harriet Lane
Here’s how it looks on the Windows Mobile screen
The pages are appropriately cross linked with a wonderful algorithms that guide us step by step to find pediatric answers at the bedside. The combination of Skyscape and Harriet Lane makes for a fantastic bedside pediatric PDA tool that is powerful, practical, with trusted content.
The price for all of the platforms is $55 except for the iPhone it’s 41 yearly subscription [here's the Skyscape purchase page] and here’s how it looks like on the iPhone;
The iPhone platform results in a much better user experience with a large screen that accommodates the wonderful pictures specially for the dermatology and the hematology sections. The latest updates from Skyscape also added the ability to directly purchase more Skyscape titles and the app can remember the last page visited. However, we regret the absence of interactive algorithms on the iPhone as seen above.
As we mentioned in a previous post the new Skyscape on iPhone also incorporates their SmartLink technology allowing us to cross with all the other Skyscape titles installed. This is unique among all other iPhone medical apps where cross linking across the different products is missing.
Unbound Medicine probably will never publish Elsevier titles any more because the problem is that Elsevier has their own online library in the form of Student Consult [such as Pediatric Secrets] and Expert Consult [such as this Harriet Lane] and this will conflict with Unbound policy of producing Web, PDA, and Wireless platforms for all of their products.
And why they did not use their own Pocket Consult platforms because that’s again the stagnant Mobipocket reader wich [unlike Skyscape] does not provide Blackberry, Symbian, or iPhone compatibility.
