Editors' Review


HealthTap gives you access to real doctors and lets you ask them questions about all types of topics right from your iPhone. And even if you don't have a specific question to ask, you can browse the questions other users have submitted and the answers they received on any topic relevant to you, as well as getting basic information about all types of topics related to health, wellness, and medications.


Profile options: When creating your profile on HealthTap, you can enter as much or as little information as you'd like. The more you enter, the more the doctor who answers your question will likely be able to tell you that relates to you specifically, but if you just want general info or want to browse without asking questions, you don't have to put anything personal into the app. Categories for entering personal information include insurance info, medications, pharmacy info, symptoms and conditions, immunizations, and more.

Tons of info: If you poke around a bit, you can find all kinds of information in this app. Topics covered range from bereavement to weight loss, and just about everything in between. There are basic descriptions of medications, procedures, and diseases, as well as specific questions and answers relating to each. And, of course, if you don't find exactly what you're looking for, you can ask your own question, as well.


Convoluted navigation: The navigation on this app is somewhat counter-intuitive, and it's likely that you'll wind up going somewhere you didn't intend at some point. Eventually you'll find your way around, but it's a little hit or miss at first.

Bottom Line

While this app is definitely no replacement for visiting and talking with your personal doctor, it's a great way to get quick answers to some basic questions about health and medications. Even if you don't have a specific question or concern, it can be very interesting to browse through the information in the app and see what you can learn about various topics that are of interest to you.
