Im not sure if this topic has been ever tackled before. Im sure as many of you have noticed, Apple boats over 1,000 medical apps that claim to completely revolutionize the way med students study, i.e. anatomy apps, pharmacology, etc.

Do any of you use any apps? If so, which ones are the best? Are they completely useless?


Thanks.

Epocrates and skyscape both have free components that everybody gets. There's a good free alarmclock app that you can get that comes in handy if you don't trust the call room alarms during residency. I can't speak to the for-fee stuff, I'm a cheapskate.
