In this article, the author discusses an application software developed by the firm, Nature Publishing Group (NPG) for iPhone users, enabling searching and reading of the website, www.nature.com on their mobile devices. The software is stated to enable registered users of the website to keep up with the latest published research from NPG. Information on laser induced fusion at the National Ignition Facility (NIF), a giant laser-induced nuclear fusion test bed in the U.S., is also presented.
