A new medical iPhone app is no-holds-barred -- for mature audiences only

It’s like having an emergency room in your pocket… minus the drama, insurance forms, and bodily fluids.

I recently came across an ad for an iPhone app. They call it iTriage. You can use it to get quick answers about medical conditions and treatments.

It actually looks like a useful tool, especially if you or your family is accident-prone or if you like to browse disease details. (Fun!)

But this item toward the bottom of the ad caught my eye…

“You must be at least 17 to download this app:
* Frequent/Intense Realistic Violence
* Frequent/Intense Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References
* Frequent/Intense Sexual Content or Nudity
* Frequent/Intense Mature/Suggestive Themes”

Yikes! Is this an iPhone app, or HBO?
