My Review:

I am a "new" mom - ok he is 2 years old, but I am still learning things. One thing that I really disliked at my last pediatric visit was the fact that the Dr. asked for my son's vaccination record and expected me to have it on hand. What? I never knew I needed to have that - but I never have to worry about that again!

Since I take my Ipad everywhere I go, I can now have all of his records at my fingertips. No more looking through paper files. My Kid’s Health stores all important health information for immediate access: vaccination schedule, doctor/dentist appointments, blood type, growth & illness history, and more. I love this. Reminders even sync with the iPad calendar!

Its user-friendly interface makes it easy for me to record Zachary’s progress and keep medical information up-to-date. I can also post any updates to Zachary's record on Facebook or Twitter via the app!

Although we only have 1 child, I could include as many children as I wanted. The app is easy to navigate with a nice layout and graphics. BONUS there is no need to pay for any additional features after the first purchase (I hate when apps do that)!

The only negative things I would say is that this app is not designed for children with special needs like asthma and there is no place to list daily medications (although I don't have need for either of these things).

Overall I think this is a great app for most families, and $8.99 is a really good price for it.

My Kid’s Health has been developed by Pomelo, whose objective is to develop a series of innovative and useful lifestyle applications for mobile devices, building on the fantastic features that tablets offer for everyday users.

That would be a great app to have if I had the hardware for it. LOL. Maybe someday when I join this century when it comes to technology I would be able to get that app. Great idea though for those who can use it!

Sounds like an awesome app! Too bad I don't have an IiPad.

Sounds like an awesome app! It sounds like something I need because it's hard to remember which of my 3 kids got what and what they weigh and everything.
