Coolness: 5+

With this app, DePuy has set the new standard in device-sponsored surgeon and patient education apps.  The app quickly earns high marks for a smooth and interactive user interface that utilizes rotating platforms to showcase their five headings: early intervention, primary TKA, revision TKA, high performance instrumentation, and professional education.  Each section is filled with information about different products, and each product is supplemented with information about design features, technique overview and guides, specific and unique advantages of the product, surgical technique guides with videos, and more.   There are some especially cool features, such as the “explore” function in the patellofemoral solutions which uses an animated knee that allows the user to flex/extend the knee at will.  This app is currently the “coolest” app available and for a surgeon who uses DePuy joint replacement products, can be especially useful as well. One limitation is that the app is nearly 700 mb in size, which can take a healthy bite out of your iPad storage.  However, after 20 seconds of playing with this app it becomes obvious why so much memory is required.
