1. Anatomy 3D – Organs: It contains information relating to the anatomy, structure, function and histology of each of the major internal organs of the body. Anatomy 3D – Organs features 3D and video tours of all of the major organs of the body. On simply tapping on the main screen, the organ you want to know more about, you are brought to a page with detailed descriptions and a 3D rotatable model of the organ selected. Audio lectures are available for a few parts, that describe in greater detail the workings of the organ, and some have videos that showcase the specific structures in action. The app also includes diagrams can be zoomed into and a detailed glossary including reference for over 320 structures. Multiple-choice quiz is also present for each organ of the body.
It has a great repository of reading material and the audio lectures make the whole learning experience extraordinary. This virtual tour of the body, in the form of notes, audio and video makes a great introduction to the anatomy of the human body.
The following video explains the features of Anatomy 3D-Organs:

1. 3D MODELS: Twenty seven models that you control, and include labels of the various structures.
2. AUDIO LECTURES: Twenty five audio lectures that describe organ functions and structure.
3. VIDEOS: Five short videos that show the structures in action.
4. QUIZZES: Each organ has its own random multiple-choice quiz, with 8-20 questions about the physical anatomy of each structure. 135 questions total.
5. GLOSSARY: For a detailed study, a quick reference with over 320 structures.
6. DIAGRAMS: Each page has multiple diagrams that you can zoom into. Over 40 diagrams that cover anatomy, histology and functions of each organ, with text that describes basic information.
For more information, visit Anatomy 3D – Organs.
2. genomePAD: It is an iPhone app that creates an easy-to-use interface to the UCSC Genome Browser. With the rapid development and release of powerful mobile computing devices, performing bioinformatics tasks on the go is becoming increasingly feasible and useful for busy scientists. genomePad takes advantage of many features and qualities from both the iPhone and the genomic maps from the UCSC Genome Browser to make portable browsing of the UCSC possible on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
1. Customizable searches in the desired biological species, and maps from genome assembly or specific chromosomal positions. genomePad allows you to query any and all genomes present at the UCSC site.
2. Genome track zooming and chromosome repositioning with navigation buttons and sliding control.
3. Organization of browsing preferences via bookmarking. Openflow viewing of bookmarks and sharing of these preferences via e-mail.
For more information, visit genomePad.
3. AirStrip Cardiology: AirStrip Technologies built its revolutionary AppPoint™ software development platform with a vision of securely sending critical patient information directly from hospital monitoring systems, bedside devices, and electronic health records to a clinician’s mobile device. AppPoint was also designed to solve core challenges in mobile software development, such as developing native applications that provide the requirements of a rich user experience while at the same time being able to scale and adapt to an ever changing world of mobile operating systems and devices. Helping mobile clinicians make more informed care decisions, the app enables a continuous flow of electrocardiograph (ECG) data and interactive historical data access.
Developing the app was necessary because remote physicians commonly view ECG data from static scanned images. These, however, require computer access and easily distort upon zooming. FDA cleared and HIPAA compliant, AirStrip applications are powered over wired and wireless networks, delivering virtual real-time waveform and other relevant clinical data – anytime, anywhere.
Here is a video which helps explaining the AirStrip- Cardiology technology:

AirStrip CARDIOLOGY allows clinicians anytime/anywhere access to live and historical ECG data on their iPad® and iPhone, along with enhanced analytics and the ability to ‘pinch and zoom’ for closer inspection of individual ECG complexes, while maintaining the aspect ratio of the ECG complex relative to the reference grid. AirStrip CARDIOLOGY delivers a 20-fold improvement in ECG visual display over traditional paper tracings and PDFs, enabling clinicians to make faster, more informed diagnosis and treatment decisions.The AirStrip platform is completely reusable, scalable and information system independent for deployment throughout the healthcare system, including medical, surgical, labor & delivery, coronary, burns, trauma, neuro, pediatric, and neonatal ICUs, as well as ED, PACU, PCU, and telemetry units. Hospitals can also use AirStrip to deliver 12-lead ECGs from pre-hospital through ED, cath lab, inpatient, and outpatient levels of care.

4. Medscape Mobile: Medscape Mobile includes the most comprehensive drug information, clinical reference tools, medical news and continuing medical education (CME). Specialty-specific news from Medscape’s award-winning professional news team is one of the biggest highlights of this app. CME activities organized by specialty and designed for use on a mobile device is also included in Medscape Mobile.
Medscape Mobile is a free information service and its comprehensive features include:
1. Drug database of over 6,000 generic and brand name drugs, plus hundreds of herbals, supplements and antidotes.
2. Drug interaction checker that quickly shows interactions for a combination of up to 30 drugs, herbals and/or supplements.
3. Medscape Medical News with up-to-date, specialty-focused medical content across more than 30 specialties.
4. Continuing Medical Education from Medscape CME in formats created specifically for the mobile device.
5. The WebMD Health Directory featuring contact information for over 400,000 physicians, 57,000 pharmacies, and 6,000 hospitals in a convenient search format.

5. Spectrum Surgical Instrument Flash Cards: The Surgical Instrument Identification Flash Cards App provides full-color, double-sided flash cards that provide instruction on proper instrument names and important inspection points for 130 of the most common surgical instruments. The Spectrum Flash Cards App is a must-have for students, training new employees, and ongoing staff education. Spectrum’s Flash Cards application is available for the iPhone and iPad.
For more information, visit Spectrum Surgical Instruments.
6. Mobile MIM: Radiology images taken in the hospital or physician’s office are compressed for secure network transfer then sent to the appropriate portable wireless device via software called Mobile MIM. Mobile MIM, manufactured by Cleveland-based MIM Software Inc., allows the physician to measure distance on the image and image intensity values and display measurement lines, annotations and regions of interest.
In its evaluation, the FDA reviewed performance test results on various portable devices. These tests measured luminance, image quality (resolution), and noise in accordance with international standards and guidelines. The FDA also reviewed results from demonstration studies with qualified radiologists under different lighting conditions. All participants agreed that the device was sufficient for diagnostic image interpretation under the recommended lighting conditions.
The display performance of mobile devices can experience significant variations in luminance levels even between mobile devices of the same model. The Mobile MIM application includes sufficient labeling and safety features to mitigate the risk of poor image display due to improper screen luminance or lighting conditions. The device includes an interactive contrast test in which a small part of the screen is a slightly different shade than the rest of the screen. If the physician can identify and tap this portion of the screen, then the lighting conditions are not interfering with the physician’s ability to discern subtle differences in contrast. In addition, a safety guide is included within the application.
