All things D

Today, it’s becoming expected that a smartphone should be able to do anything and everything useful, well beyond the gimmick of a few years ago, “There’s an app for that.” For instance, you should be able to open an app, make a video call to a doctor, show and describe what’s wrong with you, and get good advice.
