mHealth is an area of technology could support you to become happier and healthier. It is an area of digital health that covers delivery of health services and information via mobile technology. Scholars are still arguing over the official definition, with many citing that it covers any tech that can be easily carried, like wearables, portablecameras and sensors, and mobile device applications, creatively called ‘apps’. These apps can be any type of computer program, but usually we think of apps as software for a smartphones and tablets.
