Download: Guidelines for creating Healthy Living Apps (PDF 798 KB)

This guide is for people interested in creating evidence-based and effective apps that improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for users. The guide is for both those new to developing apps with little software development knowledge, and those new to working in health promotion or behaviour change. As Australia has one of the highest rates of smartphone ownership globally, healthy living smartphone apps are an ideal behaviour change tool, as they are portable, enable reinforcement throughout the day, and can provide context specific advice.
