Most of the descriptions provided for the apps come directly from their manufacturers.
The College of St. Scholastica will not accept financial or other responsibilities associated with the use of these apps or their effects on individual devices.
Not all apps work with all devices as some are designed for Apple products and some are designed for Android devices and some are for tablets and some are for smartphones. All apps listed work for Apple tablets except where indicated for Android or those that are designed for smartphones but still can be used on tablets.
Please review the requirements for the apps to make sure they are compatible with your device.
Finally, as with anything provided online and especially for free, you need to evaluate the credibility and reliability of apps in order to make an educated decision as to whether or not you trust the app enough to use it. This is especially important when it comes to using apps in a health care setting.
