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.
The formal app review is based on the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) developed by researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Australia. It is designed to score apps on the following dimensions — engagement, functionality, aesthetics, and information quality. Each dimension has several items that are rated on a 5-point scale from “1. Inadequate” to “5. Excellent”. Read more about the MARS scale.
The scores below are the mean of two independent reviewers' ratings.
