    Are you a medical student preparing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination? If so, First Aid Cases for USMLE Step 1 is an app that you have to consider downloading.

    Based on the content of the best-selling book with the same name published by global content publisher, McGraw-Hill, users will find that the app has been enhanced with content and interactive features that are not previously possible in the book format. This makes studying and application of knowledge, easier, more efficient and much more enjoyable. A revolutionary app, medical students are now able to access their materials on the go with the Windows 8 PC or Tablet without having to bring a large and cumbersome book with them.


    Users will find that the app is well organized with content spanning over 400 cases. Each case allows users to relate basic science concepts to clinical situations and includes drawings or clinical images. After going through the case study, users are presented with a set of questions and answers to reinforce their understanding of the case. The application works like a charm. In addition to the easy to flip pages, users are given extra functionalities like note-taking, emailing notes, and placing bookmarks on pages. The app also has an interesting feature that enables users to track the progress of their studies. The app is currently free to download and users will get the first 5 cases for free. In order to purchase the other cases, users have to pay a flat fee of $44.99, which is cheaper than the physical book.

    The developer of the app, Expanded Apps has been positioned at the forefront of the mobile app industry ever since its inception in 2008. They are a true pioneer in the mobile app development space, as they began developing apps approximately 6 months after Apple released its first ever SDK to developers. With their keen sense and early entry into the field of mobile app development they have been able to produce more than 180 apps to date, which range from games, lifestyle, children’s and business focused apps. However, their true sweet spot is specializing in medical apps for students, healthcare professionals and consumers seeking information.

    Ms. Skye Van Raalte-Herzog, CEO of Expanded Apps, said “We are extremely excited to be partnering with McGraw-Hill to offer high quality, bestselling content. The partnership has allowed us to create interactive apps and provide an opportunity for app users to stay connected to their content on a platform that is more suitable to their preferences. We are honoured to have the opportunity to work with them.” Ms. Van Raalte-Herzog has sights to continue to develop more apps on the Windows 8 platform from their McGraw-Hill line of medical test prep titles, specifically, apps from the Case Files series, as well as apps geared toward business professionals. Next on their development list for Windows 8 is Speak Like a CEO, one of their bestselling business titles on the iOS platform. Given the quality of First Aid Cases for USMLE Step 1, those apps are definitely worth keeping an eye out for.

    First Aid Cases for USMLE Step 1 is currently using Lotaris in-appCommerce to manage and monetize their app.
