Urology is a simple application with an uncertain audience that has three major sections. The first section is medications and entails a list of common and uncommon medications and their uses in the field of urology. The second section is a list of animations for urologic procedures, physiology, anatomy, and major operations. Finally, the third section is a list of videos with associated youtube.com ® links for a seemingly random compilation of urologic surgeries.
Sexiness of Interface/Ease of Use:
This app has a basic user interface with three main sections and lists of the medications, animations, and videos compiled in this application. I found the application to be “buggy” without smooth transitions between pages and the screen flickering and app freezing several times in just my short time with the application. Additionally, when selecting a medication and then going back to the list of medications, the app takes you back to the top of the list instead of where you had already scrolled through. This made little sense to me and made it annoying to navigate through this application.
Parts of this app could be used by anyone from a patient to a well seasoned urologist making it a difficult sell for any one group of people. Please see above for which sections would be most useful for each audience.
This is not a very strong application, especially with the mix of apps that are currently available. The medications section is an excellent resource for residents and urologists alike, but the animations and videos section seem random and I do not believe would be useful for the majority of patients, residents, or urologists. Additionally the app was a bit “buggy” making my experience less than ideal. If this app was created when the app store first began I would give it higher ratings, but with numerous apps available with the ability to describe urology with better animations and videos, this gets a ‘C’ in my book.
