Walksoft, LLC Announces the Release of HFLocator - HFLocator allows iOS Users to Locate the Nearest US Hospital to their Current Location

Share Article

HFLocator is an iOS application which allows the user to find and locate the nearest US hospital to their current location. Once located there is an easy link to driving directions to that hospital.

I love this app. I wish I would have had this last year when I was traveling through rural Tennessee. It was a nightmare trying to find a hospital nearby.

This app could be a life saver.

HFLocator is the simplest, fastest, and most effective way to locate the nearest US hospital relevant to the user's current location. Just open the app, click on the "Proximity" tab and find a list of hospitals close to the current location, listed in order from closest to furthest - up to 250 miles away. Once the correct hospital is identified, just tap the phone number to call or tap the info itself to get driving directions to that hospital. The app returns distance to the hospital of choice along with its address and phone number and whether or not the hospital has Emergency Room services.

When a search based on name and address is desired, HFLocator will find the closest hospitals that match the entered criteria. The app also has the ability to directly dial 911 in case of an emergency.

Version 2 sports an all new interface. This version does not require a network connection for location of the hospitals since the hospital database is contained within the app itself. A network connection is required for the driving directions. The app will use the built in GPS capabilities of the IOS device to determine the current location so that it can determine the distance to the hospitals which meet the search criteria.

Most mobile devices can search for hospitals using their built in browser. But the data returned is usually not precise and includes many false positives for hospitals. HFLocator has an internal database of all US hospitals. This database is created from federal sources, so it is the most accurate information available. The information includes the hospital's phone number, address and an indicator showing whether or not the hospital has Emergency Room capabilities.

HFLocator was created by Walksoft, LLC. Follow the link to the website at http://www.walksoftllc.net to see the other great iOS apps we have created which include iNeedaRide and PopAColor along with Pocket Artic and Speech Tutor from Pocket SLP
