We don't always fall ill just while at home; unfortunately, sometimes it happens while traveling. The TravelSmart app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users a way to instantly access medical support and information no matter where they are. We never plan for the unexpected to happen but the fact of the matter is that if you plan for it at least you can react properly and quickly should the situation arise. This app is filled with medical information, tools, and a directory that can prove to be invaluable.
So why would the TravelSmart app come in handy for you? Well for starters if you suddenly need medical attention you can use the international hospital directory that it offers. You'll be able to find it on the map or by GPS and get the attention you need quickly. The list of features continues as well as the information provided. This is really one of those apps you download, forget about it, and hope not to have to use it. The beauty is that once you do have this app you can use it 24 hours a day all year round so it's always there ready to help in a pinch.
This app hasn't been updated in quite some time with the last one being over a year ago when there was a minor bug fix. The app has three out of five stars and users have complained that there aren't enough functions.

What to Expect
The TravelSmart app does contain quite a bit of information but at the same time it’s important to note it’s still rather basic. The user interface is nothing flashy nor glamorous and as the users have said there aren’t a lot of features. This is meant to be used for informational purposes only. Besides the international hospital directory there is also a medicine translator so you can communicate what medications you may be taking, there is a first aid dictionary that is available in a variety of languages, and you can access the emergency contact numbers list that refers to the country you are in.
The user interface and graphics are pretty poorly done in this app but it still gets the job done. The fact of the matter is that even though this isn't a very sleek offering it really can make a huge difference while away and might just be worth having.
