No phones allowed

    Everyone is talking about what the best apps are to use on the job. Lucky for those of you that are permitted to have your device on your person.
    The LTC facility I am employed in forbids us from using our phones unless we are off the clock on our breaks.
    It would be nice to be able to load and use a useful app during my work day. . .

    "Apps" for what?

    I have several, mostly because when I was looking for them, I chose the ones with the best ratings/reviews.
    --Medscape
    --iTriage
    --Eponyms
    --Micromedex Drug Info

    And my personal favorite, use all the time at the office I'm at now - Epocrates. Hopefully I'll find more great ones. If I do, I'll certainly share!

    Ipod Touch. You will get all the apps for the iPhone but there's no phone

    Thanks for the responses, I will take a look at some of these apps that I can refer to on my own. As I stated in my original post, we are NOT PERMITTED to have, on our person, ANY type of electronic device.

    no you didn't--you wrote "... forbids us from using our phones unless we are off the clock on our breaks" and phone =/= iPod Touch.

    I'm sorry, I hadn't realized that when I said phones that I should have also stated, no phones, or any other electronic device. I didn't mention it because nobody has brought anything but phones.

    Off topic here, but just curious, why would you reply to a post with the phrase "Ummm", that sounds to me as if it were composed by a 12 year old. I've noticed that several posters write this way, personally it doesn't sound very mature to me.
    Am I the only one who thinks this?
    Just a guess, but it might be because you CAPITALIZED words for EMPHASIS in your response, which might come off as trying to sound sarcastic or speaking to someone like they're slow. So when they responded, they were like "Umm..." because they might have been taken aback by your 'tone'.
