Three Months plus
The QuitBuddy App has been a bit of a saviour for me and I’ve been smoke free for 96 days. I think the content and interaction is lacking a tad however it has worked for me. One of my work colleagues recommended this app to me on day one or two of giving up and logging in each day has inspired me to keep off the smokes. Nothing else on the app has really engaged me other than $ Saved, Mg of tar avoided and #of Cigarettes not smoked. I think the best thing is seeing how much money I have saved/wasted since I stopped smoking (over $4000 in 3 months). I do understand that this is a free app so I cannot be too expectant however I do thank you for what I have achieved so far.
Urgent upgrade required!!!
- The community section is the main way of giving and receiving support. This used to be a great but some anonymous users are deliberately deleting people's posts by hitting 'report' ( can easily accidentally hit report as well as it's positioned too close to where users scroll down to read messages) and leaving very unhelpful and hurtful messages. This is causing existing users to leave and preventing new ones from joining. Users have been leaving feedback in the appropriate section of the app and emailing the Commonwealth Department of Health Quitnow Campaign since 2017 ( now May 2018). Things have not improved - When you reply to a message and its too long it notifies you that it's too long but then deletes the reply and you have to start all over again. Very frustrating. - Needs more distracting games as there is only fruit sorter. - If the Australian Commonwealth Government Department of Health are serious about reducing smoking rates they would listen to concerns and suggestions for improvements and upgrade this app urgently!
Helpful for tracking
I didn’t use this app much, would just use it to count the days and $$ saved. When I quit it didn’t have the functionality to hold a more immediate conversation although that seems to have been fixed. The only real problem is the inability to stop the trolls and this has upset some users who’ve not been able to continue using the app. Otherwise it seems to help people get support they might not have otherwise.
