What's the best mobile option for me?

My Priority Best Option
My connection speed is often slow (e.g. 2G). All UpToDate Mobile options are designed to accommodate slower connection speeds.
I often have limited or unpredictable connectivity. UpToDate MobileComplete downloads the full content of UpToDate to your device for use offline.
I want to take advantage of features like persistent login, bookmarks, history, and Search In Your Own Language. UpToDate Mobile Apps (iOS®, Android, and MobileComplete) offer an experience most similar to the desktop interface.
I don't want to download anything to my mobile device. Access UpToDate Mobile Web by going to www.uptodate.com from your mobile browser.
I share my mobile device with other users at my organization. Access UpToDate Mobile Web by going to www.uptodate.com from your mobile browser.
