7 things I’ve learnt from my app review challenge

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 3:06:24 PM Australia/Adelaide

The app review challenge started at the beginning of this year following a request from a customer, Cherie Haig for more content about apps for child and adolescent psychology.  Initially, the goal was one app review per month which was a struggle.  The good news is 9 months into the challenge I now have a lot to more to say about apps as well as having many valuable reminders about the importance of goal setting.

 

1. Have a goal and an audience and you are accountable

Yes, I have struggled and sweated in the early days over the app reviews but now the process of reviewing an app just flows and is a pleasure.

2. Feedback helps you improve

When I started reviewing at the beginning of the year I didn’t even think about making sure the Android users had access to the apps, oops.  Anyway, feedback let me know about my lack of attention to the Android phone users (currently there are more Android than Apple phone users, but more Apple tablets sold and more Apple apps produced, go figure).

Teaching Relaxation to Young Children

Fat Talk describes all the conversations that reinforce unrealistic beauty ideals and contribute to women and men’s dissatisfaction with their bodies. “Do I look fat in this?” “I hate my arms!” and “I wish I had a flat stomach.” These are all examples of fat talk, they may seem harmless but they are powerful statements that reinforce negative body image and left unchallenged, can have a damaging impact on quality of life.
