A new smartphone app can help you track illness in your area

Science & Technology

A new smartphone app could have the scoop on sickness in your area.  

Sick Weather App tracks illnesses through information it gathers from public social media posts and reports made to the app. 

It compiles that data into maps and lists to let users know what “diseases” are trending around them. 

App developers say parents may find the “groups” component the most valuable tool.
