iPhone app for swine flu is on its way

Swine flu has been in the American consciousness for about a week now, and, as the iPhone commercials say, "there's an app for that." Almost. 

QxMD Software, which specializes in applications for the iPhone and BlackBerry, has submitted "H1N1 Update for Mobile Professionals" to Apple for approval. The app includes worldwide news feeds on the H1N1 virus, Twitter updates from the CDC and links to patient and clinician educational material from clinical information service UpToDate. 

QxMD is soliciting additional information sources from public health agencies and news services.
