  • Researchers employed the MARS (mobile app rating scale), a validated taxonomy for mhealth app evaluation.
  • Correspondingly, endpoints were engagement, functionality, aesthetics, information quality, subjective quality and perceived impact.
  • Of 109 apps reviewed, My IBD Care was the highest scoring mobile application for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and the only one that met the data protection standards set by the researchers.
