Welcome to series 1 episode 6 of the Your App Lady Podcast!

I am Betsy Furler and I am Your App Lady.

I am a wife, mother to two boys, a Product Designer, business owner and speech pathologist. I’m also an app addict.

Join me as I talk about my favorite subject: Apps.  And I may also occasionally talk about my kids, my work and the rest of my life.

On each episode, I’ll talk about recent tech news, recommend apps that I use myself and leave you with a great tech tip.

On today’s show: one of my favorite apps that helps keep track of medical records, appointments and medications.

App of the Week: CareSync By CareSync

Available for iPhone, iPad, Android and on the web.

CareSync is one of my very favorite apps, which helps you organize your family’s medical records.

The app is free, but I choose to pay for some of the premium features to manage my son’s medical information. The paid version allows CareSync to gather, summarize, and organize records and make these records accessible from any device or computer.

My son has a life-threatening medical condition and has been hospitalized over 100 times.  It is vital he has his medical history and records with him at all times.

He’s now in college and lives in a dorm.

CareSync has allowed him to be this independent!

He simply pulls up the app and hands it to the EMTs or doctor, which enables them to treat him appropriately.

The app also stores medication names and dosages and has a medication reminder feature.

All records are searchable and are arranged in an easy-to-read timeline.

Tech Tip

How to charge your phone faster.

Your phone will charge much faster if it is not searching for WiFi or receiving texts, notifications and phone calls. Do this by turning your phone all the way off.

If you don’t want to turn off the phone, put it on airplane mode.

Bonus App

I use the AMC app and iPic app to buy movie tickets. It’s so easy to buy tickets and choose seats via the apps! Go find the app for your favorite theater and go to see The Greatest Showman!
