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.

PROS

CONS

✔  Simple, easy-to-use app

✔  The app uses features to encourage and motivate users to quit such as showing how much money can be saved over the weeks as well as featuring a well-illustrated baby growth section to inform women of their baby’s development.

✔  The games are fun, entertaining and targeted at Mums-to-be such as Bouncing Baby, Baby Names, Baby Boogie, etc 

✘  The app is targeted at Australian audiences and directs users to an Australian ‘quitline’, which is not particularly helpful for NZ users.

✘  Does not track users achievements.

Reviews

Clinical review

Reviewer: Jeremy Tuohy, Researcher & Clinician, University of Auckland
Date of review: May 2017
Comments: This app is for women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant and who are planning to quit smoking. This app is similar to others available in that it provides some diversion for smokers when they feel the urge. It has motivating facts and various helpful strategies. It also provides a summary of the baby’s development as a bit of extra incentive. I found the app to be clear, intuitive, easy to navigate and pleasing to view.  
Safety concerns: None.
New Zealand relevance: This is an Australian app, and has an Australian Quitline number. It would be more relevant if it had local numbers.   


User review

Comments: You should have an entirely clean health message. Promoting a bottle for you can buy feeding equipment is poor. Breastfeeding is important as smoking increases SUDI risk and we should be no subliminally causing harm thorough promoting formula inadvertently.
