    This past October I completed an online mobile resources class by the Medical Library Association. (The class is archived at http://sites.google.com/site/getmobilizedmla/ ; it includes resources, discussions, and course content)

    We concluded there is no one place to go for good reviews/evaluations of health apps.
    However, we did share URLs of health apps that were trustworthy

    I incorporated many of these health apps within my health/medical resource Web site at

    Hoping this is useful to at least some readers.
    Suggestions for additions to my Web page are always welcome.
