In 2013, most medical sites can be viewed on a handheld device although increasingly there are options to view websites using an optimized mobile view. Through the use of mobile devices, smartphones, Blackberrys and iPhones, it is possible to locate authoritative biomedical literature on-the-go and to locate medical evidence conveniently from anywhere. Don't forget that many popular web search engines and library websites have "mobile-friendly" versions, optimized for use on a mobile device.
