WebMD Supports iPad

Medical information content vendor WebMD has introduced a free mobile application to access its content on the Apple iPad.

The WebMD for iPad application is in addition to the New York-based vendor's previous offering for iPhone users, called WebMD Mobile. Both services feature the company's Symptom Checker, content on more than 1,000 conditions, drug information including side effects and interactions, and first aid information.

WebMD for iPad also has a Local Health Listings feature, enabling consumers to search for pharmacies, physicians and hospitals by location. The application is available at the iTunes store, at http://itunes.apple.com/us/genre/mobile-software-applications/id36?mt=8.
