More evidence of iPhone as universal device – Hearing Aid Application

iPhone, with its App Store and recently-added support for third party peripherals, may soon become an extremely powerful medical tool.

We’ve still got a ways to go before we start seeing glucose monitors and blood pressure pumps pop up with iPhone support, but some health and disability-related apps are already beginning to emerge. One of the first is a new application called soundAMP (iTunes Link), a hearing aid application that was just released on the App Store, and is available for $9.99.

Interesting development — I wonder how many other ‘sense augmentation’ apps are in the works – beyond the augmented reality ones. Clearly not nearly as good as a specialized device or hearing aid, but heaps cheaper and much easier to access.

This is yet more evidence for the mobile internet being a game changer. For my take on this see my ppt:
