    "im pretty paranoid when it comkes to my health, especially since at my age, the symptoms start acting up. webmd is helpful in finding out what problems i have, but 9disclaimer) it really shouldnt be a replacement for a doctor since its just a web app. consult a doctor if you feel something bad and dont rely on webmd alone!!"

    "Not really a techie old woman, so customizing settings on my smartphone isnt that much of an option for me. I had my daughter, bless her soul, do something to fix this and she said she downloaded this app and had me leave a review. Everything seems larger and easier to use now!"
