Default First Aid App???

Please Login to Remove!

I have various apps on my 8700 from office tools to learning resources to health & fitness to a few games. I go to handago often to see what apps are there but there is one kind of app I have been looking for and never been able to find it and am curious if any of you know if there is such an app available. I think it would be neat to have an app that was based on first aid. Be it burns, cuts, bruises, poison, etc... that tells you what to do in a situation like that or how to treat or whatever. If there is an app like this out there please point me in the right direction. If there isn't and someone is reading this and thinking hey that's cool I will make an app. I call it publically so give me my props at least LOL ;)

I don't know of any BlackBerry application that provides information on first aid. In the meantime, you could search for -- and bookmark -- a BlackBerry-friendly website that provides the same info. The downside to a website would be that you might not be able to access it during an emergency, but it's better than nothing.

If you find something good, let us know.

This one displays fairly well using the BlackBerry browser:

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/Fir.../FirstAidIndex

Or, if you load it through an optimizer you can speed loading time and save some bandwidth:

It displays fine on my 7290, especially after being funneled through skweezer. I'm adding it to my bookmarks.

I would interested in a first aid app also. You never know when something like that can come in handy. I think I will browse those sites over lunch later on today. BTW Chris I hope someone does make an app like that.

Default Wallace Incident Communicator(WIC)

This is certainly related, but is available more to businesses with a number of potential subscribers(5 or more) and a BES.
In addition to communication (pin-pin group chat, incident inbox etc.), one of the key capabilities of WIC allows the parsing and wireless distribution of word docs(outline format, tables, database forms) and graphics to any of the organization's BlackBerry handhelds.
You can therefore take any information, open, parse and broadcast to BBs. For example, as WIC is primarily designed as an Emergency Preparedness / Business Continuity application, I have taken lists such as those from the Mayo Clinic and made them available to WIC clients to broadcast to users for use during an emergency".
