Epocrates has recently released a formated version of its free online drug reference specifically for the Apple iPhone. As a number of companies are doing, forced by the Apple iPhone lockdown, Epocrates is providing access via the built-in Safari browser instead of building a full application for the device.
Epocrates company representative tells Medgadget:
While it’s not currently possible to download Epocrates software to an iPhone device, Apple recently announced that in early 2008 software developers will be able to begin to create applications for iPhone devices. We are excited to explore the opportunity to offer our mobile products on this new platform as well.
