Looking for a new app? Urine for a treat.

If you are someone who continuously suffers from diseases, this might just be the app for you. You might be thinking to yourself, what could this app possibly be doing? Well, this app is actually able to tell you whether you have caught a disease or not by analysing one of your urine samples. This might seem ridiculous to you, but don’t worry this application doesn’t require you to wet your precious i-phone or smartphone. No, the application works by analysing the color coded urinalysis strip that you are required to put in your urine sample. Once that’s done, the phone will take a photo of the strip and will analyse the results. Sounds quite magnificent doesn’t it? Well, it really is, because this wonderful app called ‘ucheck’, is actually able of detecting up to 25 various kinds of diseases, some of them being urinary tract infections and diabetes. Well, one thing can be said about this kind of technology and that’s that this small pocket doctor is definitely worth looking into.
