Top 8 Apps for Parents, Babysitters & Nannies

WebMD Mobile

Rather than running to the doctor or guessing what is wrong with your child every time they have an ache or sniffle, this WebMD Mobile helps to determine what their symptoms could be from. You can insert where the pain or issue is as well as any symptoms, and the app gives you an idea of what is wrong. Of course, this should in no way replace a visit to the doctor, but it does give you an idea of what is going on.
