This app is part of a series of apps titled “Understanding Disease: XXXX.”  The “Orthopedics” version is free to download, however in-app purchases are required to view information about the subjects that are included: osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, postmenopausal osteoporosis, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.  The app is clearly marketed to patients and is likely of little use to students, trainees, or surgeons with the exception of providing material for patients to review while in a waiting room.  The limited number of subjects available for review limits the app significantly; however, an expansion could make this a potentially useful and informative app for patient education.

Cost: Free for the app; in-app purchases of $9.99 for each subject or $39.99 for all 5.
