5. Free Medical Calculators: "This post used to consist of a popular medical app that was at one time free, MedCalc, but we did a feature article on free medical calculators, and there are a great deal of choices. One of our favorite free medical calculators is Calculate (Medical Calculator) by QxMD".

6. Radiology 2.0: One night in the ED: "This rich case learning radiology tool is based on content organized by Dr. Daniel Cornfeld, an Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Radiology at Yale University School of Medicine who specializes in Body and Emergency Medicine Imaging. The app does a fantastic job of giving case based presentations of radiology imaging".

7. Skyscape: RxDrugs and OCM (Outlines in Clinical Medicine): "The free offerings from Skyscape are in the form of RxDrugs and OCM. RxDrugs is basically a drug reference tool, while OCM (outlines of Clinical Medicine) is somewhat like the disease pathology information offered by Medscape, except in a more difficult format to use. (Not available in U.S. market)".

8. Living Medical Textbooks: "There are actually 5 Living Medical Textbooks, ranging in topics from Diabetes to Multiple Sclerosis.
