This study examined the content of popular apps for smoking cessation for both iPhone and Android operating systems in February 2012. Overall, popular apps have low levels of adherence. For both the iPhone and Android, user ratings were positively associated with scores on the Adherence Index. For the iPhone, display order was also positively associated with scores on the Adherence Index. Apps could be improved by better integration with the Clinical Practice Guidelines and other evidence-based practices.
