Well, someone has been working in the government. They have just released 68 mobile phone-based apps. Several of these apps are health-related programs. These are all free apps so please check them out. You could download them to your computer or any smartphone. I checked them out and there are some really practical ones we could all use. One app tells you about any food recalls so if think you heard something but you’re not sure it applies to your city, then just go to your app.
There is also an app to locate the closest health center. So, if you’re away from home or just in an area you’re not familiar with, and you need help, you can use their information to find one.
There is a Medline app that will answer a huge variety of questions and there’s one you can use at a restaurant and you’re not sure which entree or appetizer is the better choice.
Too many apps to mention them all but go to the site I have just linked for you and look them over. There are some interesting ones, practical one and some that are just fun.
As always, I’ll do my best to keep us all informed about anything and everything us babyboomers could benefit from.
