Description:As the smartphone evolves as the central communication device of the present era, how can we transform it into a health-benefiting tool? This question has guided 3 years of software development and behavioural research. We will share lessons about benefiting underserved populations and avoiding the boondoggles of misguided electronic connectivity.
