New year, new resolution! Well, at least that’s what some of us are trying to achieve this year. With the advancement of mobile technology, we can literally rely on apps and devices to help us in fulfilling that ever challenging resolutions that we have vowed to keep. Good news for all smokers out there who are trying to quit. There is an app called Quit Pro released by Singapore-based Bitsmedia, which allows the program to track users’ cigarettes and cravings to analyze their smoking pattern.
This is not your normal quit-smoking app as it integrates the when, why and where factor in tracking users’ smoking habit to form a pattern used for analyzing where to focus when quitting. In simpler terms, you will be able to find out how often you smoke, how many cigarettes you have had and how much money you’ve burnt. This innovative app also acts as a self-evaluation app, as you can pinpoint the reasons and motivations for your smoking. It is hoped that by knowing the causes of smoking, you will be able to eradicate the root problem or at least stay away from it.
Quit Pro is currently available for free on iOS, and there are plans to port to Android if this proves successful on Apple’s platform. This app was released on December 19 last year, and in just 17 days, the app saw 5,700 downloads and was used 33,000 times. This proves that it has a very engaged user base. It’s quite impressive for a new app as it now ranks #7 for a “quit smoking” search on the Singapore App Store, #22 in the US and also #7 in France from among more than 250 quit smoking apps. The Facebook page itself has reached 2,250 likes and their demo video has been viewed 5,246 times since it was published on December 26. Based on the stats, we believe smokers who are trying to quit should give this app a try. If you’re currently using this app, let us know how it goes. Good luck!
