As an oncologist as well as a developer, I have been developing apps for for iPhone/iPad.
The following are the apps that are on the app store:
1. Journal Abstract Readers-hematology/oncology - is an RSS aggregator that aggregates abstracts of more than 70 hem/onc journals. Other features include PubMed search, general news reading
2. Heme malignancies assistant - includes CTCAE4, BSA calculator,ECOG/Karnofsky evaluator and interactive utilies for hem malignancies e.g. FLIPI, API, IPSS and more.
3. iChemoprotocols - includes more than 200 chemoregimens that are frequently updates. Plus access to DailyMed

And we are just submitting iChemoprotocols-Advanced version that calculates chemoregimen doses based upon Ht, wt. etc.

HealthTap has an app review section.
Somewhat limited commentary compared to dedicated app websites, but here is is:

It is new, but needs more filters, sort functionality.
Will likely need a build out of dedicated deeper reviews to provide utility.
