My Favorite MS Apps in 2014

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.

One 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.
