“Great app! It makes it dead simple to be up-to-date with your research areas of interest.
Easy to use, very flexible search, permits direct off-line saving of abstracts or papers, plus sharing your results with your colleagues (via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter) is just one-button away.
A must for any chemist!”
