Despite frequent adverse publicity, mobile phones can be a force for good. Professor Stephen Sutton describes research conducted at the University of Cambridge and elsewhere on novel ways of using smartphone apps to help people make positive lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking and eating a healthier diet.

Stephen Sutton is Professor of Behavioural Science at the University of Cambridge. He is a psychologist who leads a research programme on developing and testing more effective ways of encouraging and helping people change their behaviour, focusing particularly on smoking, physical activity, dietary change and medication adherence and on technology-based interventions.
