Useful apps on sale for limited time! English-Spanish Medical Dictionary and iTranslate Voice, both for iOS devices

I recommend grabbing these apps for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) as quickly as possible!

medical Spanish app icon#1: English-Spanish Medical Dictionary: FREE for a limited time! Just does English/Spanish, but has a medical focus. Usually costs $4.99.

 

iTranslate app icon#2: iTranslate Voice: $0.99 (introductory price). Translate among many languages with this app, using a Star Trek-style interface: speak to it in one language, listen to it speak the translation in another language! It uses speech recognition software by Nuance (who make the excellent Dragon Naturally Speaking desktop software), and early reviews are already very positive.

Notes about the above links:

  • If you click the links from an iPhone/iPad, it will take you to the App Store for download. Hopefully the download button will still say the price I stated above (“FREE” for #1, “$0.99” for #2). Just tap that button, which changes to “INSTALL” (then tap that).
  • If you click the links on any other device, it will take you to Apple’s web site where you can read more about it, but you can download it only if you have iTunes installed on that computer.

Good hunting [for low-priced apps]!

Gratuitous drug interaction metaphor describes website performance improvement

gratuitous use of appealing meta-clockSince changing web hosting services, the speed of ddiPad.com went up greater than blood levels of lamotrigine after the addition of divalproex to a drug regimen…and without the possibility of a deadly hemorrhagic rash!

Now that the site is usable (both to readers and authors), soon there will be more content and, eventually, a formal site launch!

ddiPad.com will soon be moving at the speed of inhibition!

Are you tired of ddiPad.com taking as long to load a link as it takes oxcarbazepine to induce CYP3A4? Well, soon, ddiPad.com will be on a much faster host and you won’t dread using it! This will also encourage the completion of many half-written posts, so there will be more to click!

PS: I almost wrote “stay tuned!” but then realized how anachronistic this would be. More appropriate would be “check your RSS aggregator regularly…”

ddiPad.com is up!

ddiPad thumbnailAs promised, you can now download the newest version of the ddiPad via the “GET DDIPAD” link here at ddiPad.com! If you don’t feel like dragging your pointer all the way up to the menu bar above, you can click the picture on the right instead.

Coming soon will be instructions on using the ddiPad, and an ever-growing body of (hopefully) interesting and useful cases, news, and references!

Feel free to remind me to stop hacking backend code and get back to making content by leaving feedback 🙂
