WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?

This review area looks at what information an App collects from users, what it does with that information and how secure is its handling of that data. For some Apps this is only a minor issue as they don’t gather much information. Other Apps can gather lots of very personal and sensitive information and for these it is important to know how they go about handling this.

WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?

This review area looks at what evidence there is that there is a suitably qualified professional or organisation behind the App or that it has been endorsed, accredited or underwritten by such an individual or organisation. It also assesses what evidence there is around user testing and the effectiveness of the App in terms of claimed health benefits. The higher the Level of the App and the more sophisticated its functions, the more crucial this becomes.

WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?

This Review Area looks at how an App has been designed to support the overall user experience. This includes its availability on both primary platforms, how customisable the App is, how well it caters for end users with different capabilities and needs – such as visual or other impairments – how content is managed, how well supported the App is and what it costs. This area also looks at overall User Review scores from both platforms.

We evaluate more apps than anyone, so that you can be aware of the good and bad.

Any score below 65% would indicate that an App has some issues that users should investigate further prior to using this App.

Scores below 45% indicate that an App has considerable issues or challenges and in its current form is potentially unhelpful or unsafe.
