There’s An App for That

I just read an interesting little article on using the iPhone to help with OCD symptoms, particularly checking behavior. Here’s a link to the article:,0,2727205.story. The basic premise is that the author’s daughter used her iPhone to take pictures of things she typically needed to check several times (i.e., making sure the oven was off, making sure that the toaster was unplugged, etc.). Having pictures in the phone helped her know that each of these things was done, which allowed her to decrease her checking behavior. Pretty cool. Give it a look if you have a minute.
