More and more people are using smart phones and tablets to view emails and social media accounts, watch movies, and read books or magazines. Increasingly, people are also using these tools to find health information.
As users begin to prefer mobile technology for "just in time" internet access, it is important that CDC enables fast and efficient mobile delivery of CDC's critical health information. To this end, we are announcing our first application (or "app") for the Apple iPad platform.
The CDC App is free for anyone to download. You can read more about it at CDC Mobile iPad Application on CDC's web site. If you have an iPad, tap directly on the icon for the iTunes App store. At the top right of the page, type CDC iPad App in the search box. You will be taken to a page where you can download the CDC App. (Look for the app with the CDC logo.)
