Summary

I highly recommend myMedRec to any iPhone users. This minimalistic app does exactly what it is supposed to using a clean and intuitive interface. It is a little disappointing that it does not have a native iPad version, though it is supported.

This app can also be used in conjunction with the knowledgeisthebestmedicine.org website. The website and accompanying app (MyMedRec) is supported by leading health organizations in Canada who believe that an educated patient is a healthier patient.
