Appsolute Must: Medical Travel
There's nothing worse than getting sick on vacation, but never fear: Medical travel apps are here. Craig Stevens has the appsolute must-have downloads that will help you get healthy on the road.
WSVN -- Getting sick while you're traveling abroad is no fun.
But mPassport will get you the help you need in 30 cities all over the world.
Find app-roved doctors and dentists in London, Paris or Hong Kong, review their profiles, and make appointments.
mPassport even helps you find nearby hospitals and pharmacies to help get you back in the pink.
If you do end up at the doctor, you'll want to have our next app on hand.
ICE4 Travel, which stands for In Case of Emergency for Travel, stores critical information like medical conditions, allergies, daily medication and immunizations.
And if you're abroad, a touch of a button translates the info into seven different languages.
It's all designed to give vital medical information to the professionals who could help save your life.
If your travels take you to the beach, be sure and protect your skin.
UV Detector uses your GPS to show the daily UV index in your area, and it works in cities around the world.
You'll get weekly weather forecasts, as well as customized alerts as to when to slap on the sunscreen, so you don't have to be app-rehensive about getting painful sunburns ever again.
Craig Stevens: "UV Detector is free, ICE4 Travel is $2.99, and mPassport costs 99 cents."
