The smart phone, and its larger cousin the tablet, has ushered in a new phenomenon—

We will design the data structures needed for health tracking and the user interface needed to present the health data. And we will implement code for the basic journal workflow.
The demo project, FooHealth, is built with the 2013r1 build of Xojo. It is available from
xDevwebsite and distributed under a BSD licence.
