What does the app do?

The app is a compilation of leaflets about acute kidney injury for  patients and carers, and healthcare professionals.The app provides the same information as appears on the Think Kidneys website. For the complete app description, go to Google PlayiTunes or the app website or for a detailed review, see Reviews.


✔ Section for patients and health professionals.

✘  Some parts of the app didn’t work for me on android, like the poster section and the share by email function.

✘ As the information is directly taken from individual leaflets, there is copious information repetition.

✘ The app’s focus is on acute kidney injury rather than chronic kidney disease which is a pity. As such, there is important missing information such as about proteinuria, dialysis, sexual function, obesity, smoking, anaemia, depression and vaccination among other topics.

✘ The health professional section has some very detailed and useful information, but again it does not cover all topics.

Privacy and security

The app does not appear to have a privacy policy, but it does not collect any personal data. Read more: tips to improve your safety and security around health apps.
