Yeh, I have heard of them (and used them). I'd say do your homework first - if you want free stuff, that's fine. If you want more in-depth clinical tools that work on more platforms, you owe it to yourself to check out Skyscape (http://www.skyscape.com) - they partner with publishers and societies to get trusted content that includes drug information, ICD/CPT codes, dosage calculators, dictionaries, lab guides, formularies, CME, MedAlert, CDC and FDA information, evidence-based information (a must in the current environment of pharmaceutical company sponsored communication), etc. They also offer free resources (check on their site). There are a few other companies like upt odate, but they are mostly on the desktop which is not always convenient.
