American Academy of Pediatrics' HealthyChildren.org Launches New App:
HealthyChildren.org, the official American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) website for parents, is now available on the go as a free app for iPhones and iPads. An android version will be available next month.
Parents can look up age-by-age health information for their children, check immunization schedules, access first-aid how-to information and other resources in a new format designed for tablets and smartphones. The app includes popular features from HealthyChildren.org, including the Find-A-Pediatrician tool and the “Ask the Pediatrician” advice column.
“So much parenting occurs ‘in the field,’ away from your home base. Now parents can easily access the best, pediatrician-approved advice on their children’s health no matter where they are,” said Jennifer Shu, MD, FAAP, medical editor of HealthyChildren.org.
Users can download the HealthyChildren app on the iTunes store.
Automatic updates to the app will keep parents informed of new features, including the soon-to-be launched HealthyChildren e-Magazine and upcoming apps such as an ADHD tracker and a car seat checker.http://www.parenting.com/gallery/educational-iphone-apps
