UpToDate for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, or webOS

Do you use UpToDate? You won't find a native app for UpToDate if you're using an Android smartphone (or iPhone, or BlackBerry, or webOS), but you can create a bookmark on your mobile web browser to: and then simply log in and access UpToDate on your mobile device.

UpToDate is an evidence-based, peer-reviewed information resource available via the Web, desktop/laptop computer and mobile device.

Back in the "old days," we used to run UpToDate on devices running Windows Mobile or Palm OS. Now, you can access UpToDate on any mobile web browser using almost any modern smartphone. So, whether you're a fan of Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, or webOS, you can access UpToDate. Waiting for Windows Phone 7 to come out? I don't think the native Windows Mobile UpToDate app will run on Windows Phone 7, so you'll need to use the mobile web browser to access UpToDate. So, whether you're a fan of Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, or webOS phone service, you can access UpToDate.


  1. I admit that it doesn't feel quite the same... Accessing a full, offline version of UpToDate on a WinMo 6.x phone is much faster than taking the online route on any other phone -- and is a huge advantage in rooms without WiFi or 3G reception.

    I hope the people at UpToDate consider an offline version for Android or Windows Phone 7, at the very least.

    the offline full version of Uptodate is always the best specially when it comes to places without wifi or internet facility in the asian countries. So , I strogly feel they should develop new Iphone and android compatible uptodate program...
