My QuitBuddy app
My QuitBuddy is an app that helps you get, and stay, smoke-free. It provides helpful tips and distractions to overcome cravings, tracking systems to chart your progress and the facts to help you understand the impact smoking has on your health.
A new version of the My QuitBuddy app is currently in development and will be available for download for free from the App Store or Google Play soon. It has a new look, new features and improved support to help you on your quit journey. You can set goals, talk to other quitters, find distractions for those danger times, learn about the health benefits and celebrate milestones.
If you are a user of the current app, you will need to take note of your quit date and take a screenshot of your profile so you can re-enter your data when you download the new app. The current app will no longer be supported after the new app is released.
