An informative patient-education app about gout with advice about treatment and prevention.

Overall: 3
Functionality: 3
Coolness: 3

This app includes a plethora of information about gout, risk factors, prevention and treatment.  What the app lacks in organization and user interface, it makes up with educational material and price.  The app includes 3 section: What is gout?  Why do I have gout? and What can I do about gout?  Each heading includes multiple sub-headings with useful explanations and information to answer each question.  Unfortunately, the formatting left much to be desired on my iPhone and would not fit to the screen size, requiring finger-scrolling to read every sentence.  There are also some interesting and animated images included in the text.  Specific topics can be bookmarked for easy reference and text could be highlighted and copied, but I could not find a way to email or print the information.  Overall, this is a useful app for patients interested in learning more about gout and includes valuable information about prevention.
