Jutel A, Lupton D. Diagnosis (Berlin, Germany). 2015;2:89-96.

This study examined currently available smartphone and software applications (or apps) designed to aid with accurate diagnosis. Although the authors described some of the potential benefits of these apps, they note that their research suggests apps should be used with caution by both clinicians and consumers, due to problems with transparency regarding sources, evidence, and credentials.
