Doctors are turning to specially approved apps to make hospitals and physicians more efficient. The F.D.A. has approved a handful of mobile applications that let doctors quickly share a patient’s MRI results. Government approval of this app took over two years, a problem that’s persistent in digitizing the industry. In other news, while the new iPhone’s virtual assistant is making headlines, Google quietly updated its voice recognition software. Google Translate for Android’s Conversation Mode can now translate 14 languages in real-time. The app recognizes your language and plays messages back in the receiver’s chosen language. And finally, have you already ditched your old phone for Apple’s iPhone 4S? The phone’s popularity has broken AT&T and Sprint’s single day sales records. 25% of people surveyed were switching to the iPhone 4S from manufacturers like BlackBerry and Nokia.
