Researchers at Cardiff University have created and launched The Official DLQI App, designed to measure the quality of life for people with skin conditions. The app is free to download in the Apple and Android stores and is now available in seven languages: English (United Kingdom and United States), Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Hindi, and Simplified Chinese. If the user’s phone is set to one of these languages, the app will automatically download in that language. Otherwise, the app will download in English.
This straightforward app gives an instant DLQI score and gives the score’s meaning. The five most recent results are stored and displayed. The individual smartphone keeps the data confidential and is not available to anyone else.
