These days, owning a smartphone is expected and even required for certain lifestyles. In recent years, smartphones have been revolutionized not only through physical and hardware upgrades, but also through digital and software updgrades. In 2015, the smartphone is a hub for connectivity, social media, entertainment, and a diverse set of utilities, from calorie counters to traffic-integrated maps. The dental world has also benefited from the smartphone revolution, as software developers create dental apps that can help you improve your dental health and knowledge. Here are three apps, free of charge, that can you download to your smartphone right now.
Developed by Benjamin Underwood, this app seeks to solve the issue of a boring brushing routine. When launched, Brush DJ opens up a screen with a metallic control board (available in different colors, as a nifty addition). The control board has several buttons, but the main feature is a “play” button centered in the middle of the screen. Press it and the app will select a random song from your smartphone’s music library and play it for exactly two minutes, which is the recommended brushing time. In addition to enjoying your favorite tunes while you brush, Brush DJ allows you to set important dental notifications, such as reminders to brush twice a day, when to change your toothbrush, and when to next visit your dentist.
