Popular apps of the coronavirus period
Have you ever wondered why you like using apps? They might help you to organise yourself! Our expert app developers in Geneva collected a couple of health related apps. They might be useful for you in the next couple of weeks. We might not be willing to go out for a while but these apps can help you keep in contact with the outside world and think about your health at the same time.
Fitness and health apps
Social media has featured more and more fitness apps and people can now learn anything from yoga to dance online.
- Digital live classes are motivating people to get into this new way of life.
- Turning inside, calming down, having more time to live healthier.
- It is also important to mention that with all the social media advertising, the price of these apps has become lower than before, too.Another motivating fact to download.
- More customers are willing to pay for using these apps. In-app purchases have also become important.
- App developers are constantly improving settings in order to help the users in tracking their goals.
Mental health apps
The coronavirus problem has not only caused physical symptoms, but for a lot of people, it has become a real mental health crisis. Countries have locked down their borders and also inside quarantines have begun. The pandemic situation affected and still affects people’s mental well-being.
Besides playing more online games or having time to watch more movies, mental health apps can also provide some help for people in need of calming down. These are the favorite of our app developers in Geneva.
Home quarantine apps
In a lot of countries, app developers have decided to create tracking apps. As a general, centrally coordinated project in each country, the app needs the approval of the user on tracking his/her location. It can save time for the authorities in order to control the moving of people who are supposed to stay home for some reason.
Contact person tracking
Another important development project in the world’s developed countries is helping people to find out if they have been endangered or not.
It is also a very sensitive information, as the app is requesting location and tracking other people who are potentially infected. In China, they don’t only register the location or identity of the users but also online payment history, etc. A lot of privacy protection questions come up, of course. But no doubt that it is an effective way of tracking and controlling quarantine rules’ respect.
Apple and Google were equally very fast on working on a global data collecting system to be able to alert people in dangerous surroundings.
The World Health Organization launched two mobile apps on May 13 helping the fight against the coronavirus. Both apps are readily available for free in different languages on the Apple and Google Play stores. Look what our app developers in Geneva are saying on these apps:
- WHO Academy app that is helping medical staff combat the disease
The WHO Academy provides virtual workshops, training and digital tools by WHO so medical experts can protect themselves and their patients in a more effective way. Now medical staff can be better prepared exceptionally in infection prevention and control, case management, and risk communication.
- WHO Info app on purpose of information of the general public
The WHO Info app gives real-time information on the development of the epidemic situation. It is especially important that anyone can reach out to up-to-date information by country and history of the crisis.
