 WebMD

Now that your little one is in daycare or preschool, you’re bound to be seeing an uptick of inbound germs. The WebMD app is a handy reference tool for checking symptoms (what could that rash be?) or asking questions (is a 101 fever cause for alarm?). The mobile app also has a  local health forecast tool–you can check pollen levels or the harshness of UV rays before hitting the playground or beach.
