TL;RD: SmokeQuitter was designed and coded by an ex-smoker looking to help others escape the addictive nature of cigarettes. There are thousands of "quit smoking" apps out there, but none have the love and time invested as this app.
No-nonsense: It doesn't want to annoy you with notifications every 5 minutes likes other apps do. It doesn't want you to log in to your social media. It doesn't want to know your location. It only wants you to quit!
Time-tracking: The app tracks your time free of smoke by the second, giving you detailed info of the chemicals you've avoided by quitting, as well as the money saved. Save money AND your health. Heck yes.
Lets you smoke (sometimes): The app allows you to smoke if you REALLY need to. You can smoke up to 5.5 cigarettes per day. The app will use video ads to deter you from doing so.
Health-tracking: It shows your health benefits according to when you last smoked. Ever wondered how much Acetaldehyde you've avoided since you last smoked? Check! Isoprene? Check! Tar? Check! In addition, the apps shows you the peer-reviewed papers it bases its calculations on (e.g. Cancer risk, insulin resistance, inflammation markers, etc).
Money-tracking: Tracks the millions* you'll save by quitting. You can show your wife/husband that you've saved enough for that huge TV you've been thinking of getting without* getting yelled at. All thanks to SmokeQuitter.
Lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, oral cavity cancer, insulin resistance, carbon monoxide poisoning, inflammation markers... it tracks it all.
Tips: SmokeQuitter gives you craving "tips" as well as allowing you to smoke if things get too ugly (it tracks this too!). It promotes the usage of validated smoking-cessation techniques/products to help improve your chances of quitting (This App does NOT replace a medically assisted cessation therapy monitored by a specialist).
Friends: SmokeQuitter allows you to keep track of friends that are also trying to quit. Just scan their QR code from their SmokeQuitter App and BAM. No social media involved. No "please log-in to continue".
Disable Ads: If you search good enough in the app, you might be able to disable ads! You can also 0.99 USD to get rid of them.
For the privacy conscious: This app will request, depending on what feature you use, the following "permissions":
- Camera: To take selfies/pictures and place them on your profile (local profile, nothing is shared with anybody. Photos are stored in the phone. In string form, literally).
- Access your media files (Write/Read External Storage): In case you want to use an existing image as your profile (again, nothing is shared). It might also ask for this permission when sharing your QR code or your smoke-free time. This is because of the way the App captures the in-app Image and shares it. It first has to write it into local storage and THEN shares it. Again, the App does not scan your stuff. I don't have the technical knowledge to do that anyways.
