Mobile apps to promote health
We are speaking with organisations that filter and manage the Mobile App market to support better effective take up either personally or through social prescribing.
How app take up can help us
Mobile app take up helps to distil a very busy market place.
It can provide support to:
- targeted website development
- social media management
- and tracking to assess impact
We are in early stages but can see this supporting our Public Health campaigns on for example:
- men at work
- sexual health
- and mental wellbeing in young adults
MyKin app pilot project
As part of our commitment to support health and wellbeing apps, we are currently running a joint project with Sentimoto to pilot their MyKin app.
The app is only available on android devices at the moment, but if you have a compatible phone we encourage you to take part. It can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
You can find instructions for setting up the app here:
Purpose of testing
Purpose of the app
The application itself is aimed at adults aged over 40 and collects and displays information on your physical and social wellbeing, showing the time spent you spend walking, outside of home, and your phone calls.
Occasionally, you will receive short messages from partner organisations, that will lead to different websites. We will be testing the platform and messages from Staffordshire County Council, and will ask for your feedback via an online questionnaire at the end of the 10-day pilot.
However, if you think of anything before then and want to tell us about it, or if you run into any issues, please feel free to contact sentimoto at: firstname.lastname@example.org
