Other Comments: Links topics/tests to Google, MedlinePlus, WebMD and Wikipedia. Except for MedlinePlus, these are not the best sources. Developed by Joefrey Kibuule, a medical student at Baylor College and app developer. An app developed by a student/independent developer would not be my first choice, but it seems to be a popular app that is widely used. Note: developer is a medical student, here is his website: http://www.medplusapps.com/about/ "I developed Pocket Lab Values because I wanted a lab values app that I?d want to use myself."
Reviews from others:
Link Description Reviewed in 2009 on imedicalapps.com. Good review, one of top four apps for medical lab values. One negative cited was lack of detailed information. A positive in the review is aesthetics and ease of use. Positive customer reviews on iTunes. HOWEVER, imedicalapps.com in a later review cites weak references (Google, Wiki) - "a decent app perhaps best used as quick references but needs some work before can be considered reliable app."
