Q: How do I gain access to my university’s electronic holding and access to full text with one tap by setting up automatic login ?
A: It’s quite simple. Detailed graphical explanation here.
Q: Is it safe for me to enter my university/library proxy information?
A: Rest assured that your credentials are encrypted and saved on your device (not our server). We only use your password to get you access to the papers you want to read. It’s essentially the same as using a password keeper on a web browser except we do one better by using Apple’s Keychain encryption.
Q: How are PDFs stored?
A: For any papers that you add to your favorites, the PDF will stay saved on your device until you delete the paper from your favorites.
Any papers in your recents list that had the PDF downloaded will stay in temporary memory until the “Recent” list is refreshed. We only keep the last 20 papers in the recents list to ensure we are not filling your devices with PDFs you may not want to store forever.
If you use iCloud to back up your iOS device and the app, your downloaded PDFs will be backed up along with the app.
Q: How can any website or iOS app provide access to full text articles using Read?
A: Link to http://qxmd.com/r/[PMID] remembering to replace [PMID] with the PubMed ID of the article of interest. If this link is included in a iOS app or a website being viewed on iPhone or iPad, Read will launch the specified abstract and full text article if possible. If Read isn’t installed, a message will request that the app be installed in order to view the article. If a user clicks on this link from a desktop browser or another mobile device, they’ll be provided with the article’s abstract. Full support for the web and other platforms such as Android are coming soon. Learn more
