App review: Focus on alcohol – Angus

This app summarises key facts, effects and advice about alcohol consumption for young people and adults in the home or while out socialising. 

The simple design is easy to navigate and contains basic health promotion data, useful statistics on alcohol use and relevant links. The low-budget format would benefit from visual, audio and interactive aids to engage the reader. Created for a small Scottish town called Angus, the information is ideal for the local community, with contact details listing relevant support services in the area. 

More cohesive structuring of information and less text would improve its overall readability. Again most information is useful but readily accessible in more credible health resources. Unlikely to appeal to a broader audience. Links to several other related apps and websites.
