Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have become an integral part of everyday life, due to the rapid development of their hardware and software, and their increased functionalities. Even so, only a few mobile apps have been developed in the field of bioinformatics to date, for providing fast and potent access to sequential data. To facilitate the researchers working on cardiovascular diseases, an offline Android application has been developed and reported here. This app is aimed at providing a user-friendly platform to the researchers for retrieving the genes associated with various cardiovascular diseases and visualizing the reported mutations in respective genes. The application provides both DNA as well as protein sequences of the genes with mutation positions highlighted. Furthermore, online access to the cardiovascular diseases related literature through PUBMED and sequence similarity search though the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) is presenting the app worth using for the researchers in this field.
