There are many newer medical apps for Google Android, so I've decided to update this blog post.
People are now looking for medical apps for the Motorola Droid, Droid X, Droid 2, HTC Droid Incredible, Google Nexus One, Samsung Galaxy S, and other Google Android smartphones on Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and other wireless providers. What have you found out there?
There are a growing number of options and new medical apps are popping up all the time. Let's take a look at some of the most popular ones:
- Epocrates is now available for Android! You can also use your mobile web browser and access drug info at m.epocrates.com
- Unbound Medicine has medical references, textbooks, and other resources for Android.
- Skyscape also has medical references, textbooks, and other resources for Android.
- MobilePDR is a drug reference app that is available to health care professionals as a free app. Non-clinicians can purchase this app. It's powered through Skyscape.
- UpToDate can be accessed via any mobile web browser. So, it's available for Android, but not as a standalone app.
- QuantiaMD (you'll have to try it. it's a great app that provides education and other resources)
