Why has The Pharmaceutical Journal (PJ) app changed?
The previous version of the PJ app was only ever updated when a print issue was published and contained articles only available in print.
As a result, to ensure you have access to the latest pharmacy news and learning content, we have launched a new version of the app that updates regularly and automatically with any new articles posted on pharmaceutical-journal.com, so you can always stay up to date with the latest pharmacy news and learning.
What do I need to do to get the new version of the app?
If you already have the PJ app installed on your mobile device, the next update to the app will automatically install the new version. We will not be updating the old version, so please ensure you do update. If you don’t currently have the app installed on your mobile device, please download it using the links provided.

No, the new app will not show the print versions of The Pharmaceutical Journal and Clinical Pharmacist. The new version of the app is based on the content from pharmaceutical-journal.com and contains many more articles than are available in print.
Can I view the content offline?
