Dealing with asthma is not the end of the world. You are going to have an easier time managing it with the right tools. Smart Peak Flow is an app enhanced gadget with a little propeller that moves as you blow into it. Just attach the device to your smartphone’s audio jack and use the iOS / Android app to track your condition.
The app lets you monitor your lung function and access readings and history on your smartphone. It also reminds you to take your medication and perform tests on a regular basis. This project is getting funded on Kickstarter at this time.
