MyTemply app logs and reports your health


People in Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea have been using digital self-reporting apps that area credited with curbing the spread of Covid-19 in the early stages of the virus outbreak.

The apps allowed government and health authorities to identify and track both people who had a virus infection or symptoms while also tracking anyone they may have come in contact with.

In the US, Apple and Google have announced plans to create a similar tracking system using a mobile phone-based app. While the Apple-Google technology is in its early stages, a private company has released an app called MyTemply that helps track their health status and share it with their school or employer.

With MyTemply, users enter their body temperature using any type of thermometer. They also note other symptoms, such a cough, shortness of breath, headache or chills. Use of the app is voluntary and the data is self-reported. MyTemply doesn't use Bluetooth or GPS and doesn't record or track anyone who comes in contact with the user.

The app is designed to be used every day to report the user's heath to their school, company, hospital, doctor, or family. Managers can get a secure dashboard that collects and organizes the reported data. The information can be shared with some human resources management systems.

The app is available as a free download on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. More information is available at the MyTemply website.
