A Great Weapon In the Fight Against Tobacco
Overall, the Tobacco-Free Teens app is a fantastic tool that not only educates about the dangers of emerging tobacco products but immerses the user with its interactive mini-quizzes and unique story progression. I learned so much that I feel confident enough to help others commit to a tobacco-free lifestyle, however, I feel there will always be room for improvement as times change and new products arise.
The Perfect App
I found the app to be highly engaging and truly enjoyed the matching games and mini-quizzes in each of the levels. The app has given me a completely different outlook on tobacco, informing me about tobacco products that I wasn’t aware of (such as snus and dip) and allowing me to make a pledge to myself to commit to a tobacco-free life.
This app is great and has helped a LOT
