Editors' review

First Aid by American Red Cross is a resource app that gives you information on how to handle and treat a variety of injuries and other emergency situations. You can earn badges by taking quizzes to test your knowledge of various first aid topics, and you can use the app as a reference when you encounter emergency situations in your everyday life.

Pros

Steps and definitions: This app provides definitions of many key terms and illnesses, as well as step-by-step instructions for providing first aid to a person in need. You can peruse the information in this app at your leisure, or you can refer to it in an emergency situation. All of the information is well-organized, so you can find what you're looking for quickly.

911 direct: While there is good information on treatment in this app, there are many situations in which you'll require the assistance of trained medical professionals. That's why the app includes a button at the bottom of each page as well as on the main interface that allows you to call 911 directly from the app.

Cons

Overconfidence: It's important to remember that this app isn't a substitute for proper medical training and resources. While this isn't necessarily a shortcoming of the app, itself, it could cause some users to forgo calling for help and try to handle a dangerous situation on their own.

Bottom Line

This app is a great resource and gives you the tools to help friends, family, or strangers in all types of emergency situations. Its intuitive interface makes it easy to find your way around, and because you never know what you're going to encounter in life, having this app on your phone is a great way to keep important information with you at all times.
