There are a lot of free health apps like this, such as those from WebMD. iTriage seems like nothing special. I tried giving it some sets of symptoms I have or have had and it comes up with general, unprioritized lists for symptoms as vague as “thigh pain”. WebMD asks more questions and gets more detailed. The provider listings on any of the programs are not that useful for most people who will want to look for providers who accept their insurance. You may as well use your insurance company’s list.

Best Part: None I can see

Needs Work: Shallow diagnosis procedure; no images of drugs.
