has a report on how McGraw-Hill is partnering up with ScrollMotion to bring their textbooks to the iPhone. ScrollMotion develops iPhone apps, and has an e-book reader for the iPhone, called Iceberg reader. Most academic institutions have Access Medicine, the subscription service that delivers most of McGraw-Hill’s medical textbooks. The Harrison’s Internal Medicine text is actually already on iTunes courtesy of Skyscape(iTunes link). The McGraw-Hill and ScrollMotion partnership already has one textbook, “How to Make Money in Stocks”, priced at $10.95. It should be interesting to see if the price point for the medical texts they bring to the iPhone will be the same as this initial book. With all the medical texts they claim to be bringing, It would be nice if they had a subscription service option available similar to Access Medicine.
