American Songwriter gets interactive

Nashville interactive agency Centresource has developed an iPad app for local magazine, American Songwriter. The application — instead of recreating all the magazine content — simply uses the PDF with added interactive components such as video, song streams and social networking.

“I believe the American Songwriter app is unique because it represents a bridge between magazines and fully optimized iPad publications,” remarks Founder and CEO of Centresource, Nicholas Holland. “We delivered the ability to leverage their current format, PDF, while still providing an interactive experience. For publications that aren't ready to reconstruct their content for the iPad, the American Songwriter app represents a unique solution."

InVivoLink launches iPad app

Health care technology company InVivoLink has launched an iPad app, called "OrthoPod," to allow orthopedic surgeons to access their personal implant registry and practice pattern data.

“OrthoPod is the first tablet-based solution that enables coordinated care for implant procedures," said CEO Ryan Wells. "InVivoLink created OrthoPod to empower the physician and improve patient care. Optimizing OrthoPod for the iPad makes a lot of sense because it clearly provides the best user experience for the physician.”

The company — focused on providing tools for collecting and disseminating meaningful data related to medical procedures — last summer launched a mobile app for scheduling and managing inventory for implant surgeries.

VUMC launches iPhone app for expectant mothers

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has launched an iPhone application for expectant mothers. Baby Time, which is free through Apple's App Store, has four features: a contraction timer, a hospital quick dial that calls the mother's health care provider and other people on her notification list, directions to VUMC, and frequently asked questions about labor and delivery. Nashville's Paramore/Redd Online Marketing and Vanderbilt resident Evan Silverstein collaborated to develop the application.
“The idea is to help moms-to-be have a smoother labor and delivery experience,” said Hannah Paramore, president of Paramore/Redd. “There are already apps out there to help moms with the general pregnancy process, but there was really nothing to help moms, or dads, with the actual labor and delivery process.”
A second phase of the app will be developed based on feedback from initial users and will include other smartphone versions.
