Today the Guardian newspaper in UK published an article on my iphone app iStethoscope Pro. It continues the extraordinary interest shown in this app, which never ceases to surprise me. Something else which surprised me was the photo... why they chose the one with me screwing up my eyes in the sunshine I don't know!

The article can be found online here, and I include a copy of it below.

Some exciting news about my iphone app iStethoscope Pro today. There has been more media interest (watch this space for details), and more interest from cardiologists, this time in Greece. The app was also featured on Apple's AppStore as a "hot app." But, perhaps the most exciting news is that research by cardiologists who made use of the app to gather heart audio has just been published in the Journal of Medical Devices. The article even has the app name in its title! For those who prefer a full citation, here it is, with a link to the abstract:
