Maps and Apps is a showcase of the most popular apps for health.

On this site you will find a complete list of almost 500 health apps voted most popular by the public and health professionals, as well as a list of their ideas for new apps.

Although the Maps and Apps project is now closed to new entries, we want to hear your news and views on health apps.
