drawMD Urology iPad

Excellent app (one of the best I’ve come across) that allows physicians to better educate their patients about urologic diseases and procedures via easily manipulated images and urologic elements. With the added feature of allowing wireless printing of images as well as the ability to email images in pdf format, this app in my opinion is a must-have.

kidneystoneMD iPhone

Good app for patients to learn about the common symptoms of kidney stones and ways by which the patient can make lifestyle changes to prevent stones in the future, but not detailed enough to be used by more expert medical students or physicians.

Advanced Urology iPhone

A simple app with random urologic questions and facts displayed in index-card format. Information quality is not at the appropriate level for the intended audience and facts/topics covered seem random.

Urology: Animated Pocket Dictionary
iPad
iPhone

A good app for patients to better understand their various diseases or procedures via beautifully animated videos. The audio commentary is difficult to follow and confusing at times. Ideally, the urologist should guide his/her patients through the animations for this app to be most useful. It is also quite expensive (in the app world) for the amount of information within.

Urology Glossary
iPad
iPhone

This app is exactly what its name describes, a simple dictionary for terms commonly found in the field of urology that is moderately useful for patients. Not the best app out there as the information is very basic without any use of images or videos to help with the patient’s understanding. The $0.99 is not worth it in my opinion.

UrologyMatch iPhone

This is an excellent resource for urology applicants and current residents that I found to be extremely helpful as I went through the match. Most of the information on the forums is reliable and helped me a great deal from originally applying through to match day. The video links are extremely helpful during medical student sub-I/AI rotations and for residents preparing for cases.

iURO Kidney
iPad
iPhone

A solid app that should be used primarily by urologists or urology residents to help patients understand stone disease as well as the procedures involved in treating stone disease through stunning video animations. The ability to draw on pictures of the urinary system is a plus.

Bladder Pal iPhone

Nice app for tracking bladder function in between visits to the doctor. Makes performing a bladder diary very easy and allows for the patient to easily track their progress. Also allows patients to check/track AUA score and email information to their healthcare provider.
