Saying When App Launches For Android!
By Lawrie Korec, Digital Innovation, CAMH Education
From a book…
In 2014 CAMH Education launched its very first mobile app, based on the highly successful Saying When program developed by former CAMH senior scientist, Dr. Martha Sanchez-Craig. The app is an expansion on Dr. Sanchez-Craig’s work, which was captured in the CAMH publication, Saying When: How to quit drinking or cut down.
“This is a great app that is easy to use for harm reduction or moderation management.” — iTunes review
The Saying When program had a proven track record of more than 20 years in this format, so we knew when we brought the program to life for mobile it would be a success—and it was!
…to a very successful iOS app
In the two years that Saying When has been available for iOS users it has been downloaded from the iTunes store more than 32,000 times!
“I am LOVING this app. It’s exactly what I wished existed!”
— CAMH Education Blog comment
In these past few years we’ve been listening to user and internal feedback and making updates to the iOS version—including adding in a function that allows users to anonymously donate their usage data for CAMH research purposes. This update came in response to a research and evaluation project currently in progress that we’ll be able to share more about in the new year.
And on to its next conquest: The Google Play store!
“For moderating or quitting drinking. Simply, amazing.” — iTunes review
Of course one of the biggest requests we’ve received since we first launched the app was to make it available for users with Android phones—and this fall we were finally able to make that happen.
We are thrilled to announce that the Saying When app is now available for free in the Google Play store!
So, for all the Android users out there who have been wanting to check out this app, feel free to head on over to the Google Play store today to download it for free. We hope to reach the 32,000-downloads milestone we’ve already set in iTunes, but in far less time than two years. We’ll keep you posted on our progress and success.
Download it for FREE from the Google Play store
