Re: Patient, beware
I also wonder how different some of these are, really, from someone who writes a book about their miracle diet, the results of which may be scientifically debatable. No way the FDA could review all of those to make sure they work. Ditto for all the books about how to get pregnant (parallel to the app in that category) or raise healthy kids, which are all getting electronic equivalents.

An app that tells you your mole is just a mole, when really it's cancer - yes, I'd agree that's in a different category and worthy of regulatory oversight.

Patient, beware
Think about where that healthcare app comes from before you buy it. Some apps may be no better than Internet myths -- and may even use Internet myths to their advantage.
