Sparkplug for iPhone
If you look at the Sparkplug icon on your phone and it has a number over it, you know that new material has been added. Clicking on the icon will break that number down to the specific areas where there is new information. For example, my icon currently has an "11" over it. Of those 11 new pieces of information, 2 are documents related to Orbitrap proteomics. One is a presentation that I can download to my phone for reviewing when American Airlines allows me to again use my portable electronics (in airplane mode, of course). The second is a curated summary of a new paper on the analysis of a modification of histones.
The App also links you to other areas of mass spectrometry, including metabolomics and drug testing, among many others. It also keeps you informed of seminars that are available in your area, wherever that currently may be.
I recommend downloading this free App. If it helps you even once, it is definitely worth the minute it takes to download.
