Date of review: April 2020
Comments: The Melon app is a very well fleshed out wellbeing app with a good community section, multimedia resources and other extras. The multiple active community support workers are a great resource to have in this app. The website advertises programmes for multiple long-term conditions such as diabetes and cancer. These were not available to Healthify for review, and only the free COVID-19 programme was reviewed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone struggling psychologically during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Safety concerns: None.
New Zealand relevance: It is a New Zealand-based app.

Comments: Too many private identifying questions. Too long process to access non-private data. Lost interest before finished trying to sign up.
