Reviews & Accolades

  • I'm a neurosurgeon in training and from my perspective the iPad is going to change the way we work. To all the people out there calling it just a big iPod touch - you don't know what you're talking about. This device is a game changer. If you work in a cubicle or office then you probably don't get it. For those of us that need to read and write while walking on rounds or on the go, then you understand. Modality apps are the most elegant medical apps for the iPhone or iPad.

  • Modality, Inc.'s big break came calling via mobile phone.

    - Raymund Flandez on Wall Street Journal
  • I am a medical student and I use this app all the time. Yes, you do have to pay for Netter's and other items, but it is well worth it considering the price of medical text books. I have my iPad with me all the time and I'm constantly using it to review material. The portability of information and convenience that Modality provides can't be overstated. The images are incredibly crisp and it's beyond easy to use. If you are not in the field then this app probably wouldn't do you any good, but if you are a student or practicing, you can't beat the convenience of this.
