Epocrates A free application
Many people have asked for a healthcare type application on YouTube and the best and most advanced one that I can think of is Epocrates. This program is what your doctor is most likely using when they step out of the exam room to check a reference. The program is free but does require a registration in which you can customize your own personal needs. For more advanced features like diagnosis and treatment, you must pay for the Epocrates subscription which varies depending on your needs.

FxCamera will turn virtually any Android into an amusing photo booth. Just select which style of phone you want to take and click away. There are even advanced features to change the photo properties.
