Cool medical app

Got the iPhone one, easy to use. Had to talk to a nurse about a fever I got, thought I might have malaria! The nurse was able to help me, was great to be able to click on the sentences and hear it out loud. Would only say to change the way languages are chosen in the home screen, took a few min to figure that out.

What is the point?

If your patient can read, great. But it is pointless to have a talking foreign language app only in ENGLISH! I was hoping for one more like MediBabble. This doesn’t help at all.

Really useful when overseas

Seriously helpful app. Went on vacation recently and my medical condition flared up. Used this app with the doc and he was able to understand what I had, my medical history and I was able to understand what his medical advice was pretty clearly. Helped me out in a pretty bad situation. Thanks y'all
