U.S. Government making mobile apps for smartphones

When's the last time you visited: http://apps.usa.gov/ to look at the latest mobile apps from the U.S. government?

If you visit that site, you'll find several pages of mobile apps like:
  • Product Recalls
  • My TSA
  • The White House
  • BMI Calculator
  • MedlinePlus Mobile
  • FBI's Most Wanted
  • My Food-a-Pedia
  • UV Index
Also, if you're rotating through a VA hospital, make sure to tell your patients that they should download and install the Veterans Affairs Mobile app. Actually, the VA Mobile app is not really an app. It's a mobile website that you can access by visiting: http://m.va.gov/

If you're a medical student and you're about to rotate through the VA, make sure you get familiar with the VA resources so that you'll impress your senior residents and attendings.

  1. That was a great find, especially the mobile USA.gov itself.

    Noticed the BMI and Foodapedia were iphone based so your readers may like to know about a free blackberry weight loss application available from WeightLossNYC in New York
