EMS World Launches iPad App: Information at Your Fingertips

By Nancy Perry Feb 28, 2012

Ed's Note: With the launch of the all-new EMS World iPad Edition, EMS World is giving away a brand new iPad 2! Enter today for your chance to win. Entries must be received by April 30, 2012. Visit our Facebook page at Facebook.com/EMSWorldFans to enter.

When I was in journalism school, there was no question of where I wanted my editorial career to go—the magazine business was my first and only choice. But the profession I entered 17 years ago was vastly different from what it is today. Technology has literally changed the way we do everything. And this month marks another big technological leap for the EMS World Magazine editorial staff with the launch of the EMS World iPad application.

Since the explosion of the Internet, we have been able to supplement our print content by posting additional material for articles—sidebars, videos, podcasts and the like—online. But we recognize that sometimes it isn’t convenient for a reader to turn to the Web and input a URL to access content. Instead, you can now download our free iPad app and experience EMS World Magazine in an entirely new way!

In addition to select articles from this issue, the first edition will include a video interview with the authors of our continuing education articles, a walkthrough of the new sun-powered trucks that are saving Richmond Ambulance Authority big bucks, and multimedia materials from the EMS Safety Foundation on the latest issues in emergency vehicle safety. Click here to download the app.

We welcome your feedback on this new method of delivering all the latest EMS news and education and look forward to keeping you on the cutting edge of technology.

EMS World is such a useful iPad app allows navigation of the latest information available on the site so easily and at point of finger tip. However there are few minor bugs like when I try to open the app it will show blank screen and automatically close itself after a few second. Needs an latest update maybe?
