Summary of "Mobile Apps in neurosurgery: a systematic review, quality audit and survey of Canadian neurosurgery residents."

In the past decade, smartphone applications (or 'Apps') have experienced remarkable development across all fields of medicine, including neurosurgery. However, due to a lack of regulatory oversight and peer-review, there is a clear need for comprehensive review and audit of the existing available Apps. In this study, we aimed to systematically review existing mobile Apps in neurosurgery, evaluate their clinical use by neurosurgery residents in Canada, and perform a quality audit of the most popular Apps.
