Heal, an App to cure your Cold or Flu by sending the Doc to your place.

Heal, an App to cure your Cold or Flu by sending the Doc to your place.

What do you do if you’re a one car fam­i­ly, your spouse is on a busi­ness trip with the Tes­la and you need some­one to look at lit­tle Bil­ly, soon­er than lat­er? What do you think about the idea of using an app called Heal to get real med­ical help from a neigh­bor­hood or close-by doc­tor? Vis­it­ing doc­tors is noth­ing new but Heal wants it to become far more com­mon place. Heal from Los Ange­les is remak­ing old-fash­ioned house vis­its by offer­ing an on-demand ser­vice promis­ing a doc­tor in under an hour. The ser­vice had start­ed in LA last year and is now avail­able in San Fran­cis­co. There are plen­ty of new start-ups that are offer­ing telep­res­ence ser­vice, mean­ing you can talk with a doc­tor over a skype like sys­tem, but for some, they want a doc­tor they touch and to inspect a sit­u­a­tion first hand. Heal sends that tra­di­tion­al med­ical doc­tor, com­plete with black bag, stetho­scope and oth­er portable, hi-tech gad­gets. Heal founder Dr. Renee Dua, a board cer­ti­fied kid­ney spe­cial­ist had a per­son­al sit­u­a­tion which had her sick son sit­ting in an ER room overnight because the right doc­tor wasn’t avail­able. “It was awful.

Introducing Everlapse: the addictive new digital flipbook app that lets you share by showing

“Sil­ly ideas” some­times have the poten­tial to go viral if they hap­pen to be addic­tive­ly pleas­ing — and a new­ly launched social app from the crew that brought you CoTweet (the Twit­ter blast sched­uler) could well be head­ing that way. Social media man­agers and com­mu­ni­ty man­agers inter­est­ed in what’s hot in the social media world may like to meet Ever­lapse, an iOS app that lets you turn your pho­tos into a dig­i­tal flip­book while let­ting your friends add theirs to your evolv­ing cre­ation, too. What users end up with is a fast-motion slideshow — not quite a video but vast­ly more ani­mat­ed and com­pelling than a plod­ding series of stills. It effec­tive­ly con­verts your pho­tos into a sto­ry­board, whether you’ve “Ever­lapsed” the snaps you took of your night out last Fri­day or, like one of the Ever­lapse team, you’ve decid­ed to com­pile a day-by-day sequence of your small child’s chang­ing face as she grows up. Ever­lapse fus­es the stop-motion tech­nique of Vine with the visu­al shar­ing of Snapchat, and social media man­agers may well agree that it has the poten­tial to become as explo­sive­ly pop­u­lar as both. From doo­dle to app The stu­dio behind Ever­lapse is See­saw, and its CEO…
