Anamneseguide: Written iPhone App Review
Are you looking for a helpful and detailed guide on specific health conditions? Do you want to increase your knowledge and learn more about specific symptoms and what they might signify? Then Anamneseguide from developer AKS Aeskulap is just the app you need! It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.3 or later.
When the user first loads Anamneseguide they are prompted with a disclaimer basically stating that this app is for information and reference purposes only and is not made to diagnose or provide a solution to any health related problems. Then the main menu appears and the user is prompted with a virtual clipboard that shows three options to choose from: “Medical Hx” (Medical History), “Tentative Dx” (Tentative Diagnosis), and “Knowledge Nugget”. The “Medical Hx” portion is basically like taking a self quiz and seeing how much the user actually knows about certain conditions. The “Tentative Dx” section allows the user to select certain conditions and answer a few questions on what the symptoms are like which would lead in a result of showcasing different possibilities of cause and effect. The “Knowledge Nugget” portion is basically a section that the user can refer to if they want to know more about a specific condition.
Note that this version of the app only covers conditions and symptoms concerning the abdominal area. If the user wants more information on other areas, they will need to make additional in-app purchases.
Appearance and Layout:
The general layout and appearance of Anamneseguide is very simple. There are literally three primary sections to select from, and once the user selects a specific section, they can easily figure out what the purpose is and what do from there. Navigation is easy and very comprehensible. Color scheme is light and non-distracting, and they aren’t any fancy and unnecessary graphics associated with this app.
Overall, the value of is a good one. It is a great app for those in the medical field or interested in entering the medical professional world. It hosts a plethora of information and useful guides to specific abdominal conditions. The only slight downside is that fact that this particular app only features abdominal area related conditions and if the user wants additional information on other areas, they will have to make more app purchases. However, for the wealth of reference and guides this app provide, the price of purchase is well worth it.
