It seems there is now an offline option for the mobile UpToDate. Medical Smartphones reports that UpToDate MobileComplete “lets you download UpToDate’s clinical content locally to your iPhone and iPad”. The catch is that this is an “upgrade” which will cost $49 per year. You can upgrade your subscription to UpToDate MobileComplete by logging in to UpToDate.com from a computer and click “My Account.” In the “My Account” window, click “Renew my subscription,” select “Add new products.
I’m a subscriber and and checked my subscription options but the option to get UpToDate MobileComplete is not there so my guess is this is only an option for North American subscribers for now. Heck even the free UpToDate iPhone mobile app (which requires Internet access and a valid subscription) is only available in the US (or at least to those with a US iTunes account but as we mentioned , there are ways to get one even if you are not in the US)
