With so many people using smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, it is no wonder that there seems to be an “app” for just about anything and everything.
Applications come in many
different form and serve a variety of purposes. Not only are there games
galore (which are fun if you need to pass some time), there are apps to
track activities, apps that are basically miniature websites, apps used
to access businesses and services, apps aimed to educate and entertain,
as well as apps that connect individuals.
If you search
for current apps related to “multiple sclerosis” on iTunes, you will
find up to 65 iphone/ipad apps available, approximately 80% of which are
free to download. Many of these apps are also available for Android
devices in addition to other apps that are only available for Android.
of the most recent apps I loaded onto my iPad is one developed for the
massive ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS conference which was held in Boston, September
10-13, 2014. This was a cool find because once every three years, the
separate continental conferences dedicated to MS are combined into one
massive event. This year’s joint conference was expected to attract up
to 7,000 attendees from 90 countries.
In this 4-part
series, I will share with you some of my favorite MS-related
applications as well as many new ones I’ve recently discovered. In this
post, I focus on conference/meeting apps as well as apps that connect
with social networks.
