What does the app do?
This app aims to motivate people who are trying to quit smoking by tracking the time until your quit date, how many cigarettes you smoked, and the number you avoided smoking, the money saved and the health benefits. To help you better understand your smoking habits, the app tracks the moods or times of day you smoke, so that you can develop a quitting strategy.
For the complete app description, go to either iTunes (apple) or Google Play (android).
The colourful green and red graphs enables the user to easily compare the number of cigarettes you smoked vs the number you resisted. This graph also helps the user see those times in the day you smoke the most.
When recording triggers, not all triggers are available with the free version - for example, the trigger 'morning routine', which is a common one, is available on the paid version only.
The user is only able to see the health benefits indicator and money saved after they have quit. It would be useful and motivating to to see these as you reduce the number of cigarettes smoke.
The app does not contain any information such as tips on how to keep motivated, the harms of smoking, medical therapies, etc.

The formal app review is based on the Mobile App Rating Scale (MARS) developed by researchers at Queensland University of Technology, Australia.(1) It is designed to score apps on a few comprehensive dimensions — engagement, functionality, aesthetics, and information quality. Each dimension comprises several items which are rated on a 5-point scale from “1. Inadequate” to “5. Excellent”.
