Making the doctors more productive allowing them to focus on more major things like the cure of the diseases instead of diagnosing it . It will be definitely a great help for doctors .

At the very least, it is another test to perform... give doctors a quicker search for possible issues.

No doubt these Apps can be very usefull to doctors . It saves there precious time which once was utilized in long and time consuming investigations. With the help of such Apps it becomes easy for doctors to focus on the  main point without getting distracted and wasting time .

Yes, I agree they will help with early detection, Pubudu. I think what you mean when you say people won't have to go to the hospital is that they may catch something early enough that they won't get to that stage of the illness? If so, I agree. I still think people will need to consult doctors, though, and not just trust an app.

The insurance for such a device is looked at completely differently than if it were human. This would be considered a piece of lab equipment and the false negative rates are measurable therefore it would be up to the user not the equipment to make the call of action required with a suspicious mole that the equipment marks as benign. Insurance rates would not be high for this one.

True Elizabeth, it is a truth that early detection of cancers will save lives. This kind of apps will have a great chance of early detection, cause that it does not need to go to a hospital.

Cabe, it is the whole truth, I am sure that smart phones will do more wonders in near future for sure, It's like to have a personal assistant in the pocket who has all the qualifications on earth.
