Under our IntuApps brand, we released a new iPhone app that has data on the Swine Flu outbreak. Let me take you through the app, which has yet to be approved by Apple. Note, if you want to be notified when the app is live, leave a comment below with your email address and I will notify you.

Starter Page, something simple:

Swine Flu iPhone App Home

Threat Level Page, a web page that takes info from the WHO’s threat level page:

Threat Level - Swine Flu iPhone App

Mapping Swine Flu cases through a Google Maps RSS feed:

Map of Swine Flu iPhone App

Clickable Map details, by clicking on a pin, you can read more details:

Swine Flu iPhone App Map Details

Swine Flu Facts:

Swine Flu iPhone App Facts

Swine Flu Alerts pulled from WHO, CDC and HealthMap Twitter accounts. We actually used Yahoo Pipes to consolidate the feeds and host the RSS, which you can see over here. Here is a picture:

Again, to be notified when the app is live, leave a comment below with your email address and I will notify you.

    I’m confused. Your images have OpenStreetMap maps, but you’re talking about Google Maps. If you’re using OpenStreetMap, you should be attributing its use — that’s part of the license.

    Russ, the map itself is OpenStreetMap, which is labeled in the screen capture.

    However, the data points used to plot the pins is pulled from Google’s My Maps.

    Hope that clarifies things.

    I would like to be informed when the app is available. I presume that the info is worldwide as I will be driving through Mexico. Also the name Swineflu is mean to pigs.

    Great initiative Barry. Apple should make a priority of releasing this kind of app the same day. Have you thought of posting it to Cydia?

    You should send a note to the CDC….I bet they’d find your app quite useful. Given the government push for “social distancing” I can see how this could be quite a powerful tool. Love to hear when you go live.

    Any way the swine flu tracker can be developed for G1 phones? I was laid off from work, don’t have medical insurance and would really, really like to not get the swine flu (or any other illness) particularly not having medical insurance…

    …also, consider renaming it the H1N1 Flu Tracker. As has recently been pointed out in many places, it’s more accurate and less detrimental to the section of population involved with pig-farming. What do I care – I’m a vegetarian… but seriously, no need to destroy their livelihoods over something that is not actually connected.

    Great idea for an app. Just moved to an iPhone 2 days ago when my Tilt tilted while travelling, so still a newbie but really appreciate the ability for developers to contribute. Appreciate a heads up when available.

    Thanks

    Glad you’re offering an app that could save lives for free. Thank You. If Apple cares about lives, they should approve this quicker than any other apps. Please let us know when it’s approved.

    Will the app differentiate between resolved cases and live ones? This is a good app and should continue even if this flu goes away temporarily. There is a risk it may return in a stronger mutated form in the Fall.
