iBreastCheck, a new free iPhone app from the UK, takes the guesswork out of that essential (and potentially life saving) regimen. It includes easy-to-follow guides ? in both video and diagram form ? on how to effectively examine yourself, and adds a calendar reminder to make sure you're doing checks routinely.
From its wording to the video's voiceover, this app has a comforting, warm British accent, like a "Masterpiece Theatre" version of something that could otherwise seem cold and intimidating.
There's much more to this app too, including details on how to donate and fundraise for breast cancer awareness and a quiz to assess your own breast cancer risk. The key to it all is accessibility: wherever you are, it equips you with loads of useful information on how to make sure you and all the women you care about stay healthy.
