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. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play or iTunes and for a detailed review, see Reviews.
