Asthma Australia has three apps to assist people with asthma and their carers. Click on each below to find out more about why we created the app, how it can help you, and where to download it.
If smoke and poor air quality if one of your asthma triggers, we recommend downloading the AirRater app.
AirRater is a free, award-winning smartphone app that was developed by a team at the University of Tasmania. The app is designed to help people with asthma, hay fever or other lung conditions to better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
AirRater does this by providing easily accessible, real time and local information on key environmental triggers of asthma, such as bushfire smoke. It also allows you to track symptoms and identify which conditions impact your health. The app will also send you alerts when the air quality is poor - helping you understand when you need to take action.
The app is already available in Tasmania and the ACT, where it is supporting over 10,000 users to better manage their health.
With NT Government funding, it is now freely available across the Northern Territory.
The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, or Google Play for Android devices. Click here to find out more about AirRater app and download.
