FotoMed HD



Developer Quote: "In the case of medical information, FotoMed HD's medical image search capability makes the understanding of medical issues fast and easy."

- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Education, iPad, Lifestyle, Medical, Native, Reference


Sometimes it is so much easier to understand meaning conveyed in a picture - whether photo, image or cartoon. Political cartoons put a world of understanding into one simple image. In the same way, difficult medical concepts can be best comprehended when reading a diagram or picture. When using FotoMed HD, you can compare and use pictures and images to make understanding simpler and more enjoyable while trying to make sense of a heavy topic. Additionally, you can read health news and search a medical dictionary from within this helpful illustrative, medical reference iPad app. Some of the features that make FotoMed HD worth having on your iOS device are shown below:

- Medical and Health Tool:
Monitor and track your own conditions, educate yourself, and improve your health awareness.

- Medical Reference, News, Blogs and Dictionary:
FotoMed HD has a well indexed access to medical reference provided by MedlinePlus, a service of the US National Library.

- Read health news and blogs from trusted sources like Mayo Clinic.

- Look up medical terms with Merriam-Webster's Medical Dictionary.

- Medical Image and Information Finder:
Provides a customized search tool for medical information, medical images in particular, from trusted web sites.

- Photo Logger and Image Bookmarks:
Track your own pictures and medical images you find from the Web and medical reference.

- Smart Photo Comparison and Manipulation:
Compare your photo with health and medical images from trusted web resources, or compare your own photos (such as skin conditions) taken at different times.

- Take pictures with iPad 2 camera:
Select photos from Photo Logger, existing Camera Roll, or get medical images from web.

- Zoom in/out, rotate, pan photo/image for better viewing experience.

- Tap a picture to view it with more transparency. This allows you to compare two overlapped images.


There are many helpful features within this reference app. My favorites are the medical image and information finder, as well as the smart photo comparison tool. All of us should have a major interest in our own well-being, in addition to that of our families. FotoMed HD makes it more palatable and infinitely simpler to research those medical issues that arise from time to time.

COOL CONCLUSION: FotoMed HD provides several useful and comprehensive tools for researching illnesses and, more importantly, for preventing sickness by taking a clear, informed look at wellness and the best way to approach that goal.

Polymer



Developer Quote: "Polymer is a strategic shape-creating game that combines the logic of Rubik’s Cube, the sliding mechanism of Chuzzle, and the creativity of Lego."

- COST: 99 cents    - APP STORE STARS: 5
- Categories: Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle


Polymer is a challenging, brain teasing, shape creating game done with simplicity and style. You've got to carefully think out your winning plan when sliding columns and rows to make "polymers". It is no easy task to do this as every time you slide a piece, it causes others nearby to move. Some of the features of this clever iPhone connect the pieces puzzle game are shown below:

• Procedurally generated: every game is different!
• Captivating unlock system
• Five unique pieces
• Everything non-cosmetic can be unlocked without in-app purchase!
• Multiple color schemes
• Tweet or save your best polymers
• Game Center leaderboards and achievements

3 Game Modes:
• Two Minutes: Casual and fast-paced
• One Polymer: Stress free and thought-provoking
• Bombs: Destroy the endless waves of bombs!
Bear in mind that although there are 3 game modes, two of them must be unlocked by accumulating points or using in-app purchase. In the 2 Minute timed mode, you have 2 minutes to rack up the points as quickly as possible. To explain the basic premise, the goal is to slide pieces around a board to form closed off shapes. What you want to do here is thoughtfully produce a closed chain of attractive and unique, high-scoring polymers.

In each of the three game modes, you will be using varying game strategies. Remember that in all games the larger the pieces you form, the greater your scores will be! Try learning the technique of this game by starting off in the untimed One Polymer mode. Here you can practice building units to your heart's content while gaining a better understanding of the game's strategy.
COOL CONCLUSION: Polymer is a fascinating game that is both enjoyable as well as a challenging puzzle in creating shapes and chains that join together using your logic and brains.

Lingo of the Day: Tipping P: A phrase popularized by Malcom Gladwell's book "The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference." In 2004, the phrase became a cliche to describe any technology that people were becoming interested in. There are hundreds of thousands of blog entries about "The Tipping Point" which means the term itself has reached a "tipping p" in the blogosphere.

SayHi Translate: Use Your Voice to Speak a New Language





Developer Quote: "SayHi: Translate is the easiest way to speak another language using your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad."

- COST: 99 cents     - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Business, Education, Languages, Lifestyle, Native, Reference, Travel, Universal


When you work in a multicultural state such as I do, there are clients from dozens of countries often creating a language barrier. Sure it's great to mingle with fascinating people who may have a completely different and exotic lifestyle. However, how do you communicate in your business besides drawing on paper like a child, or making too many costly mistakes because of comprehension errors?

SayHi Translate: Use Your Voice to Speak A New Language Like a Pro helps to cross this huge boundary. SayHi Translate converts your native tongue instantly from one language into another of many choices provided. Naturally, the more you train your phone by speaking to it, the more accustomed to your voice, intonations and language SayHi Translate will become.
SayHi Translate supports 23 languages and dialects including English (from a group of English speaking countries), Spanish, French (2 choices), German, Italian, Japanese, Cantonese, Korean, Dutch, Norwegian, Portugese and many more.

This voice recognition, language translator, universal iPhone app is super useful for people in all areas of life such as doctors, lawyers, bankers, educators, retailers, social workers, and just about any job which brings you into customer contact. I can see the usefulness of SayHi in doctor's offices and hospitals being in that daily situation myself and recognizing the life or death need of speed and accuracy in translation. Your particular situation may be less urgent, still you should never pass up a useful business tool. Additionally, this app could be a lifesaver used in personal circumstances during travel, as an example.

COOL CONCLUSION: Don't give up potential clients or make a lousy business deal because of poor translation skills. Instead use SayHi Translate to bring a spark of understanding to whomever you speak.

Voice Answer





Developer Quote: "Voice Answer is an assistant that works for your device. You can ask it questions on any topic, either by talking to it or writing, and it will answer you in a clear voice."


- COST: $3.99     - APP STORE STARS: 3-1/2
- Categories: Business, Entertainment, Lifestyle, Native, Reference, Utilities, Tools


Due to the nature of my job, my hands are on one keyboard or another almost 24/7. This causes wrist fatigue at times, and so any way to avoid typing is of great interest to me. Voice Answer by Sparkling Apps was released today on the App Store. It is a very competent method of solving my problem as it uses voice recognition and query. This is an app similar to Siri in that it is both a chat and reference bot for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

For purely entertainment purposes, you could chat on any topic with it. Let me stop right here... This is not an "it" bot - her name is actually Eve! Query Eve on the subject of your choice, and she will answer using Wolfram Alpha as a main source. Chat with her on a personal level, and she will appear positively human. I suppose I am particularly biased since this morning I asked Eve, "Should I go to work today?" She enchanted me with her answer, "Ah..maybe you could use the rest!" What's not to like about this chat bot?

Okay, let's get serious now because Voice Answer has some amazing capabilities to help ease your life. You could ask questions on any topic including History, Nutrition, Education, Culture, Media or just about anything you want to wrap your mind around. Just tap the bot icon on the bottom of the screen to activate the microphone and speak. You will be answered instantly. Not only is a detailed written response provided, but Eve will also read the information back to you. If you don't want to dictate your question, simply tap the keyboard and begin typing.

The app is super easy to use with a clean and understated interface. Just tap and speak or type your question. Remember to go to Settings and select a few items such as -Chatbot On/Off, -Answers stored (from 1 to 10), -Speech output (none, Summary, Full). I use Summary as I don't need Eve to read the whole answer given although that could be very helpful to some. When you have accumulated a full page of questions and answers, you can Delete History to clear your screen.



How does Voice Answer actually operate? When you speak, your question will be displayed. The app will then connect to the most compatible sources on the internet for your answer, although the main source is Wolfram Alpha. When I asked, "How many U.S. dollars are in a Great Britain pound?", Eve not only clearly gave the answer, but broke it down to currency units adding up to that amount along with currency images of both countries and a graph depicting recent fluctuations.

This app is going to take off like a rocket as it is quite powerful in its infancy, yet the developers already have many exciting plans in the works. Some of these include an update that will provide messaging and email support. Additionally, Eve will soon become a fully animated robot! Voice Answer will be an efficient search and enquiry method for disabled folks or those who have "4 thumbs" when it comes to keyboards! It works extremely well in quickly providing the answers you require.



COOL CONCLUSION: Use Voice Answer as a capable assistant when you must have answers to certain questions instantly, or when you just want a "friendly, sympathetic ear" with which to chat!
