I want to share the following site, dedicated to the explanation of each inhaler technique.

I think it will be useful for patient guidance, and it is based on each inhaler's leaflet.

Thanks :)

Hello! My name is Anvar, I am from Russia. I graduated from medical university and worked as an ophthalmologist. Total I spent 8 years of life in medicine. I liked programming it was my hobby and it's turned out that the hobby became my profession. So last four years I am working as an iOS developer. It is a little info about me, But let's go back to the topic of the thread.
I have developed a mobile app for studying anatomy - Easy Anatomy

The problem application solves is that every year millions of medical students learn anatomy and it requires lots of hours of memorization from atlases and books. My solution is a mobile app that has all you need to learn anatomy. We've created accurate, high-quality anatomy illustrations and exam quizzes. All anatomical terminologies are in Latin & English & Russian.
So no more words lets look at screenshots:

So if you are studying anatomy, you can try my app as an instrument for more effective learning of anatomy.
