MyLife by Irish Life
Live a healthier, more active life with the MyLife app by Irish Life. MyLife will help you to understand more about your health, and pinpoint the small things you can do to improve your health and wellbeing.
REAL-TIME HEALTH SCORE
The Health Score is a scientifically calculated number from 1 (low) to 1,000 (high). The higher your Health Score, the healthier you are. The Health Score moves up or down in real-time, depending on how your body, emotional wellbeing or lifestyle data changes. Tracked over time, your Health Score is a good indicator of your overall health.
PERSONALISED HEALTH COACH
The MyLife Health Coach will offer you advice through the app and encourage you to make healthy little changes that will help you feel good.
TRACK ACTIVITY AND HEALTH STATS
You can track your physical activity, nutrition, stress levels and sleep, as well as body data and details of your mental wellbeing. The app has an integrated tracking functionality and you can also use wellknown tracking hardware or software, like Apple Health, GoogleFit and Fitbit to share your exercise, sleep etc. data with the app.
The MyLife app uses motivation techniques from behavioural science and collaborative features from social networks. To ensure you remain active and engaged, you can participate in challenges and set health goals. The app will also provide you with personalised feedback and encouragement to keep on track.
The MyLife app by Irish Life is free to download and use.
The MyLife app is provided by Irish Life Financial Services.

“Really slow app on the iPhone X. Takes about 1 to 2 minutes to view anything outside of your profile. If I wasn’t part of a challenge I would not use it.”
This is no longer the case. I felt I needed to come back and amend the review. It is much much faster and a good application. It’s nice that there are incentives to do exercise and eat better. Also it doesn’t bug you with notifications or emails which is great. You can go in and use it when you want to. There is a nice points system to enter draws for prizes and discounts.

Hi, thank you taking the time to share your feedback and i'm delighted to hear you are now enjoying the app. If you have questions at any point please feel free to contact us at email@example.com. Kind regards, Joanna
An interesting approach with unclear rating system that has some major flaws
I have been using the app consistently for number of weeks. Lots of parts of it is interesting and is well implemented.
I think some of the biggest queries users seem to have I based on the health score, hows it’s measured and how it’s used. Lots of people are against health insurance companies having access to their activity levels.
Some days can be very consistent. And then other days vary hugely. Losing a chunk of points due to a higher HR - not not being able to tell when or why that happens. For instance mine spiked after a cardio workout... and the app deducted points... for being active. But then you answer a few questions on mental health or food intake and your points can sky rocket. Some goals are repetitive and you could input the data required much faster.
Steps don’t seem to sync accurately between Apple Watch and this app. I can be told I have not met my target on my life but could be a few thousand steps ahead on my tracker.
The bot is predictable and if you have say 5 or 6 notifications pending, the bot can be slow to show the next message.
Recently some point prices to redeem vouchers have fluctuated quite a lot - I do wonder is this with the introduction of some vouchers in GBP and currency fluctuations but the “price seen” is not the “price paid”. Good to see new rewards being added tho.
Overall, I will keep using the app and am interested to see where it goes
As a new release, the app isn’t bad but there is a lot of room for improvement.
It’s designed to give you a health score based on a very limited set of criteria, and while this will work for the majority of it’s users it has significantly failed to capture certain *essential* nuances which would make it an ideal health companion for all users.
The bot also has very limited range for user interaction which can be frustrating at times....and easy to cheat; if you’re so inclined.
The interface is slightly complicated and doesn’t have a very organic flow or ease to use. But as with everything; after a few interactions it becomes slightly easier but still remains over complicated.
The “Rewards” system used is not especially amazing either. (This app works by a. Giving the user a health score and b. Allocating “Reward Points” based on achievements set out by the app; movement, diet etc;).
In essence, if you already have a FitBit the rewards are of no significance to you as 90% of the rewards offered are for discounts off various FitBit models.
It combines mental health factors that I have not seen incorporated in any other “fitness” app.
It tracks lifestyle as a evolving variable.
It tracks body fat %, cholesterol, blood pressure, blood composition and heart rate (among others) to offer a far more holistic view of health.
Everything considered I still use this app although admittedly it is with far less zeal than I had originally.

Thank you for your feedback.
The initial Health Score you receive when you first register for the app is based on four pieces of information, height, weight, sex at birth and date of birth, this is the base Health Score. Post registration, the more information you provide the more accurate your Health Score becomes. You can add BMI, heart rate, blood pressure, blood values etc. in the Track section of the app.
Your Health Score also changes based on your level of activity, sleep and your interaction with the coach.
We are continuously looking to improve the coach questions and answer format. You should notice improvements over the next couple of months.
We update the rewards available within the store on a regular basis.
We appreciate your feedback and thank you for the time you've taken to do this.
Kind regards, Joanna
