Journal Club: Landmark medical trials at your fingertips App Reviews

No anesthesia section

I was very disappointed to see that the current version of this app lacks an anesthesiology section, despite it being shown in the screenshots in the App Store. I paid for this app with that notion in mind, being an Anesthesiology resident... after inquiring, I was told that the anesthesia articles were now captured under the critical care section, but that doesnt really seem to be the case... love the idea for this app but disappointed that my specialty isnt really covered as it was billed to be...

Nice start

Decent start. Many papers missing. Incomplete cross-referencing. Would benefit from larger database


Crashing like crazy on my iPad Mini 4, especially when I try to sort by date. Also, the touch accuracy is totally off. I have to touch below what I want to select. Edit: working fine again

Very concise and practical

For anyone who strives to practice EBM, this app is outstanding.

A must app

This app is just amazing as a resident on floor for quickly looking up famous trials and their results. A must have!


An amazing IM intern showed me Journal Club on a a research heavy Stroke Service. Its role on my phone is different than UpToDates function because of its depth in landmark studies. I recommend it for med students encountering research heavy rotations and those with a genuine interest in navigating landmark studies.


App is good but some important trials are lacking. Hope they will be added in future updates.

Great app!

Continuously updated, very useful on the wards and for studying. Beautiful design! I absolutely recommend it!


I use this all the time in practice. Very easy read and useful.

Updates needed

Small amount of journal articles and lack of updates is this apps biggest downfall. (Last updated October 2015) I would pay up to 1.99 for its current journal content.

Best collection of important journal articles

This is a great application that keeps track of the best journal articles that have impacted medical care and decision-making over the years. The information is summarized in a succinct fashion and I love the additional comments as well as the links to the original article or abstract.

Incredibly useful

This app is incredibly useful. Im a pharmacy student and have always wanted something that could condense all major landmark trials into one place. Highly recommended!

Abandoned project

Looks like someone had something in mind, but at the time of closing, discovered that he can make money

Simply amazing and helpful

Great to quickly look up and know the landmark journals

Very Well Done

Going through literature is a time consuming process that sometimes does not yield any useful information or even incorrect information from poorly done trials. Journal Club save me time since I know I can trust the quality of source.

Exceptional Resource

I use this app to look up details everyday for EBM on ICU rounds. I feel it provides a lot of need-to-know information in a concise manner. Definitely easier to refer to this app for most of my evidence needs. It is not a complete list of journals but it has everything you need to practice in an academic setting. Enjoy!

Should be continuously updated

Great app but please add more trials. I otherwise have no complaints.

Exactly what I had hoped for

So easy to use, well summarized, the most relevant and up to date studies. This is a great resource for students, residents, and attendings.

This is the best literature review app

Fantastic quick detailed information at your fingertips.


This is a very effective, thoughtful, useful, efficient app to bring the universe of clinical trials to your fingertips.
