INTRODUCTION: Most smokers start smoking during their early adolescence, often with the idea that smoking is glamorous; the dramatic health consequences are too far in the future to fathom. We recently designed and tested an intervention that takes advantage of the broad availability of mobile phones as well as adolescents' interest in their appearance. A free photoageing mobile app (Smokerface) was implemented by medical students in secondary schools via a novel method called mirroring...

BACKGROUND: Early childhood is a critical phase of development. In low resource settings, monitoring this stage of development and providing appropriate and timely feedback is a challenge. Community-based service providers play a key role in promoting early childhood development in areas where government services are weak. These community-based service providers are also tasked with the collection of monitoring and evaluation data for donors and local government. Usually, collection of these data aims to provide accountability, learning, and correction leading to improvement...

Mental, neurological, and substance abuse disorders cause huge burden. The available resources to tackle the huge burden are insufficient, inequitably distributed, and inefficiently used, which results in a large majority of people with these disorders receiving no care at all. Advances in technology can be used to address the concerns. At present, technology is utilized in online psychological interventions and mobile apps in the United States of America and United Kingdom. In India, technological advances are utilized in telemental health, mobile apps, software aiding psychological assessment and retraining, training for mental health professionals, and information delivery to general public...

Nonadherence to asthma medications is well recognized. Interventions to improve adherence, however, have been only moderately successful and are not often adopted because of limited provider time, training, or institutional support. The potential for mobile communication technology to improve adherence has gathered sharply growing interest. Technology-based adherence tracking devices have been in existence for almost 3 decades, but have only recently reached a level of reliability and utility to be considered in allergy practice...

BACKGROUND: Implementation intentions are mental representations of simple plans to translate goal intentions into behavior under specific conditions. Studies show implementation intentions can produce moderate to large improvements in behavioral goal achievement. Human associative memory mechanisms have been implicated in the processes by which implementation intentions produce effects. On the basis of the adaptive control of thought-rational (ACT-R) theory of cognition, we hypothesized that the strength of implementation intention effect could be manipulated in predictable ways using reminders delivered by a mobile health (mHealth) app...

People set goals to improve their overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, people often lose motivation to achieve their goals because they fail to set proper goals. Goalify is a free mobile app with paid features that can help people set, achieve and maintain goals. It follows Locke and Latham strategies for successful goal setting. To gain greater control over their lives, we recommend readers to use a theory-based mobile app to set, log and achieve their goals.
