"NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide for iPhone"
This chemistry/chemical engineering iphone application is developed by a company called ThatsMyStapler, a company from Canada. It's too bad that I don't use an iPhone (I really want to use one now...anyone want to sponsor me?). Since I have not use the application, I can't really provide my insight on this product. However, here is some part of the press released with regard to the new Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide...
Edmonton, CA Mar 26, 2010
[prMac.com] Edmonton, Canada - ThatsMyStapler today is pleased to announce the release of the NIOSH Chemical Hazards Pocket Guide for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch.
"There are now several implementations of the NIOSH Pocket Guide (NPG) in various forms available in Apple's online store, but our application has a pleasing native interface and features we believe users will appreciate the first time they use it" said Steven Farkas, president of ThatsMyStapler.
"The iPhone is very capable of reading many PDFs and HTML pages available on the internet, but we have found that quite often there is a fair bit of panning, pinching and zooming required to read files intended for PC Desktops. Users will find the information and ancillary references in this NPG reformatted to an easy readable format set to the iPhone's display."

The industrial hygiene information found in the Pocket Guide assists users to recognize and control occupational chemical hazards.
