There seam to be more swine flu apps in iTunes store than confirmed swine flu cases throughout the World :). As of today, there are 25 iPhone applications related to swine influenza available in iTunes store.
Eleven of these apps are free, while the other 14 cost somewhere between $0.99 and $1.99. Most of these apps are either trackers, meaning that they show you maps of swine flu cases, or RSS aggregators, bringing you the latest swine influenza news. I tried all of the free apps, and can tell you that none of them really impressed me. Some are better designed than others, some offer more functions, but none are great. For example, Swine Flu Tracker Map looks great, but its map loads so painfully slow that you want to shoot yourself. On the other hand, The Swine Flu Tracker (notice how creative the names of these apps are) doesn’t offer any additional features, but has the fastest loading map. As for news aggregators, my favorite would have to be H1N1 (Swine Flu) Update.
Please excuse me now, I am very busy developing my own swine flu app, which I am going to call TA DA !!! Swine Flu, I’m Tracking U.
