Review: The latest version of the Better Health Channel app remains valuable for mobile devices. Finding appropriate health information is easy. Colourful icons help with selecting health conditions, lifestyle, recipes and services. Specific categories can be scanned quickly, and the healthy living section is effective at matching detailed fact sheets on specific health issues, like stress and safety, with lifestyle (work, play, nutrition). The fact sheets refer to official guidelines, research evidence and links for more help - the health information feels reliable and thorough. Much content is similar to the website though. The app may benefit from cross linking to relevant health concerns within fact sheets. The fact sheets are detailed too, requiring some time on certain topics.
