    Top apps for ob/gyns and their patients in 2015

     

     

     

     

     

    We are witnessing an interesting trend in the mobile phone market. During the late 1990s and early 2000s, mobile phone manufacturers focused on making phones as small and unobtrusive as possible.

    In the intervening decade, phones have gotten larger, and in the past 18 months, we have seen mainstream smartphones of record size, including the iPhone 6 4.7” display, iPhone 6 Plus 5.5” display, Galaxy S5 5.1” display, and Galaxy Note 5.3” display. Given these dramatic increases in screen real estate, the onus is on app developers not only to create visually pleasing apps that capitalize on increased screen resolution, but also to take advantage of a device’s ability to present large amounts of information on a single screen.

    Here are our top apps for women’s health practitioners and their patients in 2015.

     

    iOS Health

    Not only did Apple’s newest operating system, iOS, come with a bevy of improvements to the strength, power, and capability of iPhones, but it also came with a preloaded healthcare-focused app named Health. With this unified metric-based wellness consolidation app, users can track a wide array of health and wellness information via statistics on the dashboard.

    Think of Health as an easy-to-use and easy-to-navigate repository of health information. Samsung and other Android manufacturers have fragmented the Android health data storage market with their individual iterations, while Apple aims for a single app on a single secure platform.
