Researchers investigated the effectiveness of a mobile app in women at high risk of developing body image disorders. 95 participants were divided into random (iApp) and deferred (dApp) application groups. The women in the first group started using the application immediately, and the women in the second group started using the application after 16 days.

The app used ( – Anxiety Mood & Sleep) is designed to help young people improve their body image. Users swipe down to accept positive statements about their bodies and up to reject negative statements.

The first group appeared to show a reduction in symptoms of dysmorphia (excessive self-criticism about their appearance) and body dissatisfaction associated with eating disorders after 16 days.
