What does the app do?

For the complete app description, go to Google PlayiTunes or the app website or for a detailed review, see Reviews.

PROS CONS 

✔ 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.
