The increasing mobility and mobile device creation affect the development of mobile medical application. The wide range of mobile devices and platforms force developers to make adjustment in order to make the healthcare applications run on those devices and platforms. In this study, we develop a healthcare application on popular smartphone platforms: the Android, Windows Phone, and iOS. The goal of this study is to analyze and develop a mobile healthcare application using their native language and features in the platform itself. The phase of the development starts from preparation, development, functional test, and the end user test. Iridology application for the healthcare diagnosis is used on the method. Although the development using Android platform is faster and richer in built-in feature, it is not providing a stable operating system. The Windows Phone platform is simple but offers more stable operating system and has almost as good as Android features. The iOS platform is very stable operating system, simple features, however, but it takes time to learn to build an iOS app.
