Medical apps for your smartphone
It's a confusing medical world out there, full of obscure terms and a language that is technical but still foreign, even to many tech types. There are a zillion ways to translate these terms and keep track of medical matters, but how to unearth them in the immense data universe?
If you have a smartphone of the i- or Android variety, the Harvard Health Letter makes it easy. A free article in its latest issue describes several smartphone apps, so you can search the App Store or Android Market by app name instead of imprecise keyword. The apps can help you count calories, keep track of your workouts and glucose level and blood pressure, look up mystery terms, reduce your stress, and in many more ways smooth your path toward a healthy future.
