A new feature we’ll be doing at iMedicalApps is providing an overview of the notable medical apps released for iOS and Android during the prior week.
The key thing to note is these are not all of the medical apps released in the past week. Rather, these are the medical apps that stood out to me as having potential use for medical professionals. There are some great medical apps here and many are free. Be on the lookout for a weekly Android medical apps list as well.
