What does the app do?
This app aims to support mums-to-be who are trying to quit smoking. The app is divided into 2 main sections - Learn and Play. The Learn section provides the user with tips and helpful pointers for quitting. To further inspire the user, the Baby Growth section has information on the foetus weekly milestones and the Your savings section gives the user ideas on what they could buy with the money saved. The Play section has fun games to distract users who have cravings and feel the urge to smoke. For a detailed review, see Reviews.
