Do Your Homework Before Downloading A Health App
(Undated) -- If you want to get healthy, there's an app for that. Before you download the first app you see, Doctor Daniel Neides says you need to do your homework first. There are about 100-thousand health apps to choose from, but doctors recommend sticking to the ones approved by the FDA. Apps that monitor your blood sugar and give general patient education are usually good ones, but stay away from apps that say they can test your hearing or act as a heart monitor.
