## Learn Mode

The learn mode allows you to:

Please buy this version-- don't use the free version unless you're a student

This is a welcome addition to the iPhone family of useful applications for the healthcare practitioner. Keep up the great work!

Most Excellent!

I've had this app on EVERY Palm I've owned over the last six years. Now that I can have it on my Touch, one more reason to drop the Palm completely!

Useful little app

Well worth the $1.99 for those who can't keep their Chvostek's Signs straight anymore.
