AusPollen Apps for people with allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and allergic asthma

Nov 8, 2016

Local AusPollen Apps provide information on daily levels of pollen in the air and are currently available for Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney at by downloading the free App for iTunes or Google Play, and through Twitter or Facebook.

Completion of a short (~5 minute) online questionnaire before and after the pollen season will help the AusPollen team to evaluate usefulness of the AusPollen Apps and how this service can be improved.

AusPollen research will help with planning pollen count stations for the future and determine if there are local triggers that make hay fever and asthma worse.
