To examine how Transtheoretical Model (TTM)’s processes of change and mHealth literacy strategies are employed in mobile smoking cessation apps.
A purposive sample of 100 iTunes apps were coded to assess descriptive (price, type, developer, user-rating) and engagement metrics, including processes of change and mHealth literacy strategies (plain language, usability, interactivity). One-way ANOVAs and independent samples t-tests examined associations between descriptive and engagement metrics.
Over half of the apps included 7 (78%) processes of change. Fewer included self-liberation (36%) and reinforcement management (34%).
