The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is known to have many outreach services, putting free science into the hands of anybody who wants it. One such initiative is the free e-magazine, the HHMI Bulletin. Reading this magazine has just gotten much more iPad-friendly, with the HHMI Bulletin reader app. This app allows users to download any issues from August 2010 onward, to be read with ease via a user interface that allows users to adjust font size and easily move between articles in each bulletin.
