Ratings and Reviews
Awesome app. As a St John medic this has been invaluable tool. Pics of inhalers would be an asset to add.
Love the Application More device images please
Love the ease of use for this App. Only downside is there are limited images of devices available. As a pharmacist some people find it easier to point to their device. Even though it’s tedious there are multiple strengths available & a picture is worth a thousand words
Wonderful app to teach patients
I have just used the App for the third time today with patients in our GP clinic. Very user friendly, easy to navigate and up to date asthma management. On line referral to Asthma Foundation is very cleaver.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
