Have you tried BrowZine to stay current?

BrowZine is a free tablet application that lets you browse, read, and stay current with top scholarly journals subscribed to by the URMC and River Campus Libraries. The app is for iPads and Android tablets.

With BrowZine, you can:

♦ Read and follow your favorite scholarly journals.

♦ Create a personal bookshelf and get notifications when new articles are published.

♦ Save articles for off-line reading or export to RefWorks, EndNote, Papers, Mendeley, and other services.

Dr. Robert G. Holloway, Department of Neurology, uses BrowZine on his iPad and calls it  “a game changer in the way I use and process information.”

To learn more, listen to this informal discussion with Dr. Holloway and Valorie Hallinan, Liaison Librarian, Edward G. Miner Library, at this link:

Getting started with BrowZine couldn’t be easier.

From your tablet, go to http://thirdiron.com/download/and select the appropriate icon, or go directly to the Apple App, Google Play, or Amazon App store and download it for free.

The first time you launch BrowZine, select University of Rochester from the dropdown list, log in with your credentials, and start exploring!

    Currently, UR does not support Docphin, although this app is very similar to Browzine. So if you use Docphin you won’t be able to access the journals UR subscribes to. I have not explored Docphin in depth, but I believe it has a discussion platform for rating and commenting on articles, and additional social media features, and Browzine does not. Here is a link to an iMedical Apps review of five similar applications that includes Docphin. http://www.imedicalapps.com/2013/06/apps-continuing-medical-education/. iMedical Apps is a good source of reviews as it is written and vetted by health care professionals.
