My Health Checklist 2012: iPhone App Written Review
Getting older is hard: No matter how you slice it, it’s just an uncomfortable feeling to wake up one morning with a new ailment, a new ache, or even just a new wrinkle. However, just because your body is getting a little rougher around the edges does not mean you have to stay lax about your upkeep. One of the coolest ways we’ve seen to stay up on your health is My Health Checklist 2012, by developer Proven Health Ways. The app makes it simple to know what you should be looking for, as well as what you shouldn’t be worrying about at this point in your life. It’s simple, priced accordingly, and all around an incredible utility. For our full thoughts on this health-oriented app for the iPhone, check below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind My Health Checklist 2012 is relatively simple: Each of us experiences roughly the same medical problems with age. These stages directly correspond to specific concerns, such as rising blood pressure, high cholesterol, or even increased risks of cancer. All of these concerns will need to be addressed at some point in our lives, but maybe not right now. So how do you know what you should be looking for, as well as what you shouldn’t be?
With My Health Checklist 2012, you simply put in your gender and age, and the app will take it from there. The title produces a fully comprehensive list of elements you should have check out immediately, as well as some other problems you should likely wait on. From there, it also gives you a list of conditions you’re not particularly at risk for, allowing you to ease off on the stress until a few more years have passed by. It’s a brilliant way to stay on top of your health, and we greatly appreciated the simplicity of the app.
Design and Layout
All in all, we greatly appreciated the ease-of-use with My Health Checklist 2012. The app makes it quick and simple to get real results, and as each and every possible procedure or health risk can be clicked on for more information, it’s never been easier to learn. However, we do wish the app came with just a little more data. We’d like to see external links to studies about cancer risks, or other medical conditions. The convenient lists are ace, but keeping the user even more informed could be a tremendous boon.
At the end of the day, though, if you’re looking for a quick way to learn what you should or should not be worried about with your body, the three dollars My Health Checklist 2012 requires is a small investment. For peace of mind and a speedy education, it’s our opinion that $2.99 is a small price to pay.
My Health Checklist requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
