Mental Elf readers favour iPhone app: results from our October poll

iphone and android

The autumn leaves are falling in my neck of the woods, so it’s time to say thanks to everyone who took part in last months poll, which asked if you would be interested in a mobile app of the Mental Elf to receive daily alerts on your smartphone.

71% of people who responded said that they would like to see a mobile app, 26% said “no thanks” and 3% said “huh?”.

Of those who were keen on an app, nearly half (48%) preferred the idea of an iPhone app, with Android coming in second at 33% and other smartphones grouped together in third at 19%.

This small poll confirms our view that iPhone and Android apps would be a popular way for people to keep up-to-date with the latest mental health research, policy and guidance.  We are developing mobile apps and hope to have them launched in the next 3 months, so watch this space!

The November poll is an easy one for all visitors to complete.  It simply asks which of the professional roles best describes you (e.g. mental health nurse, GP, carer).  Please take a second to complete the poll as the results really do help us develop the website to meet your needs.

I’m off to pick some mushrooms!

Cheers, The Mental Elf
