Medical 2.0 Pills: Is Inkling a good reason for a medical student to buy an iPad?

Med Geek asks whether Inkling will lure medical students to buy iPads. I'm not sure it is, it's essentially a text book that allows you share notes with others using it. However, it doesn't let students pull the content into other tools they might use like note taking apps, Evernote, OneNote etc and they can't pull other content in either.

Apple’s top 80 apps for doctors, nurses, patients

Apple’s top 80 apps for doctors, nurses, patients | The daily digest | Scoop.it

Based on the more rigorous surveys and reports, it’s still true that clinicians are generally more eager adopters of both mobile devices and the medical apps that run on them. The persistent challenge for many iPad-toting physicians, however, is where to turn for medical app recommendations. In its efforts to be at least somewhat helpful on that front, Apple has slightly reworked and beefed up its now more visible section of “Apps For Healthcare Professionals”, which appears to be consistently featured in the AppStore’s medical section.
