Swine flu! It’s the panic du jour, far less dangerous than eating poorly cooked chicken or getting in a car, yet apparently infinitely more scary. And now Harvard will take $2.49 to scare you on your iPhone.
Harvard Medical School has just released HMSMobile Swine Flu centre, a $2.49 app that offers all sorts of stuff that doesn’t quite seem worth $2.49. This includes:
– Videos on how to protect yourself (spoiler: wash your hands)
– A quiz on whether or not you have swine flu (spoiler: you don’t)
– An outbreak tracker to see if the fever has swept through your area
– Advice about survival kits, just in case shit gets really f—king serious
