Mobile Apps & Resources: App of the Month

To keep you updated on the go, our ‘app of the month’ highlights one free informational app every month!

Librarian reviewers from the Knowledge Resource Service (KRS) and the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) consider the audience and purpose of the apps, as well as highlighting additional features:
 
  • In the ‘Evidence’ section, we assess how easily an app user can identify the app’s currency and support from the evidence
  • In the ‘Usability’ section, we assess the organization of information and other usability factors that may contribute to user experience

Our complete grading criteria for evidence and usability are embedded in the review.

Please note that the reviewers are not healthcare professionals, and so cannot appraise the quality of any recommendations within the app. The reviews are not endorsements.

View the AHS policy on Mobile Wireless Devices and Services.

 

**Schedule change for 2023** 

The App of the Month schedule will temporarily change to quarterly in 2023.  New apps will be evaluated and posted in February, May, August, and November 

 

We'd love to hear from you!
