One thought on “Top 12 iPhone, iPad Medical Apps to be Always Healthy

  1. Whoever wrote this is clearly not from the medical profession as I can tell you these are not even close to what I would pull up for reference while working. BMI calculator and blood pressure app? Come on! Even medical students know that crap without needing an app for that! And no, sleep cycle isn’t a medical app!

    *calms down*..I would have to say however iOS is way better for “proper” medical apps(NEJM, med calc, oxford handbooks, dynamed and a some skyscape stuff just to name a few). Bought the latest nexus 7 because I liked the 7 inch size but was really disappointed in the poor amount of medical apps in android! Argh!
