AS028 | iAllergens Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis App

Available on the App StoreiAllergens is now officially released. It’s been 3 months in the making and it’s finally here.

It’s an application (app) for the iPhone, iTouch, iPad for those with food allergies and anaphylaxis. Watch the video for more info and check out the iAllergens page.

So simple it just works.

As I mentioned in the video, I’m offering 10 free copies of this app as a launch promotion. All you have to do is comment on this post and state what country you live in, and I’ll send you out the iTunes promo code for a free copy of iAllergens. First in best dressed. I did say in the video 5 for the USA and 5 for the rest of the world.

I’m also starting the app at just $2 USD in iTunes, but will be raising the price next month. Early bird catches the worm.

Having trouble viewing this video online?
Try the downloadable MP4 version 28MB (should play fine on all machines).

Good luck

AS026 | Flourishing with Food Allergies Interview

It’s been awhile since I’ve been active with my videos / podcasts for the show, and for that I apologise.

To get back into the swing of producing this show on a regular basis, I thought it was high time for an interview.

I’d just finished reading Flourishing with Food Allergies by A.Anderson recently and I thought it would be great to have an interview with her, and talk about some of the interesting topics that are in her book.
