Kidometer for iPhone is a reference of age-based normals, providing immediate access to the information you need while caring for pediatric patients. Tap in the patient's age and gender, then browse through over 200 elements of age-specific data, including vitals, labs, developmental milestones, nutritional guidelines, and other essential information.
Chapters in Kidometer:
∙ Adolescent Data
∙ Basic Vitals
∙ Trisomy 21
Kidometer was built by physicians, for physicians. The same Joel & Burke, who brought you Kidometer for the Palm many moons ago, have teamed up again to bring Kidometer to the iPhone.
*** NOTE ABOUT IOS 7 ***
If Kidometer is crashing on startup after upgrading to iOS 7, delete Kidometer and re-install it from the app store.
*** NOTE REGARDING KIDOMETER ON THE IPAD ***
We know folks want an iPad version of Kidometer; we do too. Currently, Kidometer is designed for the iPhone, *not* the iPad, so, while it can run on the iPad, it's not pretty. We hope to include native iPad support in the future, but we focused on making a great iPhone interface first. The bad news: we cannot promise if/when iPad support will come. The good news: if/when we add iPad support, we will provide it as an upgrade (we won't charge for a separate iPad version).
What's New in Version 1.1
iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support.
A welcome return from the old "Palm" days! When busy between patients trying to look up normal ranges for certain ages, being slowed down even a couple minutes is extremely important. This app is the most efficient way I have found to get those answers quickly and move on in my clinic day. Parents also can use this resource to answer some of their clinical questions. Simply, an amazingly useful app.
Simple, well designed, good data
Really useful. No unnecessary design elements or gimmicky effects, just a solid UI and a surprising amount of information. I like the references at the bottom of each page; I know exactly where the data is coming from.
Helpful data for the mobile pediatrician
I used Kidometer as a resident many years ago, when Palm Pilots were being used by our program. So far, it's stable, and seems to have the same tables it had before. Thank you!
