Across all mobile platforms, fitness and health applications are some of the most popular and most frequently downloaded. How can librarians help consumers and patients navigate the growing field of health and wellness applications? By better understanding how to evaluate applications, librarians can help their users make informed decisions about the apps they choose to download. This webinar focuses on understanding how to evaluate apps and provides information about recommended apps. Selected apps will be discussed.
