Swine Flu Tracker App on the iPhone

Filed as News on May 4, 2009 6:54 pm

Pending Apple approval is a new free app for the iPhone and iPod touch that will allow users to track the Swine Flu “outbreak.”

Created by Barry Schwartz, blogger and application developer, the Swine Flu Tracker will include a threat level page, clickable maps of reported cases and alerts issued from WHO, CDC and HealthMap Twitter accounts.

Whether you’re calling it Swine Flu, pigfluenza, or H1N1, it seems this story is gaining steam. The question is: is the threat of a pandemic real or is it all media hype?

The Swine Flu Tracker comes from the same folks who have realease the Target store finder and Coffee Finder.

Check intuApps Website for info on when the app is approved.

    the spread of AH1N1 or Swine Flu is really scary. It is a good thing that this virus is not very deadly. We are advised to take Vitamin-C and to wear face masks.

    Interesting stuff. Did you hear that there’s a new strain which is resistant to the anti-flu drugs? Tamiflu etc? Found a really good website for tracking it’s progress, seems to be updated every hour or so… http://www.swinefludeaths.co.uk.

    the use of face masks and boosting your immune system by taking lots of vitamin-C is still an effective way of preventing the spread of the Swine Flu virus.

    My brother got infected with H1N1 or Swine Flu in Mexico. He got a mild fever and luckily he did not die.

    i think that in asian countries the Swine Flu did not spread rapidly compared to those countries that are located in colder climates. we should still be very thankful that the swine flu did not cause massive infections.
