Small but mighty! More features than other well-known PubMed search apps, and no ads. PubSavvy lets you search medical journal abstracts from PubMed, using integrated tools and smart shortcuts developed by an expert searcher.

Access over 21 million medical journal abstracts indexed in MEDLINE by the National Library of Medicine, plus publisher-supplied pre-MEDLINE records, from anywhere you have an internet connection. Let PubSavvy be your secret weapon in the race to keep up with biomedical publications. PubSavvy lets you screen through the wealth of information in PubMed quickly and effectively.


Well-thought-out features facilitate your search, including preloaded search strings to refine results, easily accessible saved search history, and a custom keyboard with commonly used PubMed and MEDLINE punctuation.

Once you run your search, easily select the most relevant citations, create, name, and save collections on the fly, and email your favorite abstracts both as text, and in a format compatible with reference manager software. Full-text pdfs can be read online or emailed for later perusal, as copyright permissions and institutional subscriptions allow.

Fine print

PubSavvy provides an interface to abstracts from PubMed, as provided by the National Library of Medicine, and full text articles from NLM and journal publishers. Information downloaded via PubSavvy does not constitute medical advice.

Good stuff

As far as I can tell, this is the first of the pubmed search apps to allow for full display of the new structured abstract (objective, results, conclusions, etc) that NLM has implemented.
Full disclosure - I designed this app, and I'm proud of our feature set and continuing improvements. I search PubMed a lot and wanted mobile access that made things simple and honed in on the most useful features. With this app you can screen through results and select multiple citations at a time, add selected abstracts to a collection, and create multiple saved collections for different purposes. This saves me a lot of time in my work - I hope others will find it useful as well.
