@jeremypeng has announced that his small development team has been working on a Bitshares mobile wallet; The wallet is initially only targeting the android market place but seem like it is nearly ready to launch! You can see the announcement HERE. As mentioned in the comments it is important to recognise that this wallet will be in control of your private keys and as such you should be cautious with storing large sums of money in this wallet until the source code can be verified by yourself or trusted community members. @goodkarma went through the same vetting / trust period when he released ‘eSteem’. I truly wish @jeremypeng and his team the best success and hopefully one day in the future they will enjoy a level of trust from the community which can only be earned by positive reputation.
@cerebralace is working on a A Decentralized Electronic Health Record System called ‘medibyte’. Medibyte aims to allow a patient’s health information – chief complaint, medications, allergies, past medical history – to be recorded in a medical record which will be divided into blocks and stored on the Medibyte blockchain. Each patient medical record can not only be accessed by that patient alone, but can also be quickly queried and accessed by their provider. They are also looking to use open source machine learning algorithms in order to determine the most likely diagnosis for each incoming patient. You can find out more HERE
