Quit Pro, the app designed to help smokers give up the nicotine habit, which was launched in 2012 and limited to iOS users, has been made available on Android. So if quitting the deadly habit is part of your New Year resolution, it is time to buckle up and download the app from Google Play Store.
So how does it work?
The app, developed by Singapore-based Bitsmedia, is a monitoring tool that tracks every cigarette a user smokes. The intelligent app identifies the moments of a day when the temptation is at its peak. It understands and tracks triggers that make a particular smoker want to smoke the most.

Not only that, it aims to motivate users by monitoring progress of how long they have not smoked, the money saved and the health benefits. Users can then share the same with their friends.
The app can be downloaded for free and users can upgrade to a paid premium version.
The monetisation step is not merely to rake in the moolah. The company will donate five per cent of the profits made from the app to Cancer Research Foundation, shared Erwan Mace, Founder and CEO, Bitsmedia.
