What does the app do?

This app provides users with comprehensive information about what asthma is, signs and symptoms, triggers, treatment and first aid. A lot of information is provided within the app itself and more in-depth information is provided as a link to downloadable documents or pages from the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation website. The app allows users to create a 3 or 4 stage asthma action plan with each stage relating to a different level of severity. The action plan includes a list of possible symptoms and allows you to enter medications, treatments or other instructions for each stage. Users can take an asthma control test (the app links to an external website) to help them determine the level of control they have over their asthma.      

PROS

CONS 

  • Engaging and appealing look with simple interface.
  • Well structured and easy to use.
  • Relevant information is provided in clear, simple, language.
  • Users can access more in-depth information if required.
  • Asthma action plan can be shared with relevant contacts such as family members, sports coach, etc. 
  • Basic, generic images of inhalers used in medication section is not very helpful. Real images of inhalers would help users recognise their specific inhaler. 
  • App is mainly an education tool so it doesn't have features like symptom tracking or reminder setting.
