With the popularity of smartphones and tablets, each week more and more apps flood the smart device market and are available in popular app stores for downloading. A number of these apps are applicable to those living with Parkinson’s. Some are free and some cost money; some are frequently updated and some are rarely updated; some require permissions and some do not. With all of these options, how can users, including those living with PD and CarePartners, evaluate the quality of an app to know whether or not it would be a good idea to use? This presentation will review a number of questions, presented as a checklist tool, that users can use to evaluate an app before downloading it, to help protect them from the bad ‘app’les.
