Hey guys, I've been accepted to a FNP program for Fall 2013. Just wanted to know what kind of smart phone(s) everyone is using and the programs/apps you guys have on it for school. Still using a flip phone (Don't judge lol) and I feel this is the best time to upgrade.

TIA.

iphone 5, UpToDate is my favorite app.

I strongly discourage use of epocrates as some info is just downright inacurate

Both apps mentioned are available for both iPhone and Android phones. I personally prefer Android, but iPhone is definitely more simple to use. I personally got really bored of mine after a while. Now I am pretty happy with my Samsung Galaxy. Play with both and see which you like more.

I've been using the Micromedex Drug Information app since my undergrad days and I find it user friendly and informative. I want to say they have a drug interactions app as well, but I have yet to try it.
