NOS advises: spot ticks with this app


NOS advises: spot ticks with this app

Spring is here, so ticks are too. Do you know how to prevent or cure a tick bite? Be well informed with the RIVM tick bite app. 

Prevention is better than cure

True. Thats why the 'Tick radar' is a popular functionality of this educational app. Its even mentioned in the Dutch NOS broadcast (Arnold van Vliet, April 2nd 2016): "With the tick radar its easy to see what the tick activeness expectation is, up to ten days from now." So convenient!    

It 'takes' two

Obviously we are quite big fans of this app ourselfs. But more important: what does the target group (hitchhikers, tree lovers, nature addicts) think? We will share a couple of the reviews with you. 

Pim Roos, 20th of August 2015 ★★★★
Nice app with lots of information. Super convenient when you're outside for e.g. sports or camping. 

Rick Beekman, 17th of Juli 2015 ★★★★
Informative! I live close to the woods and I go here regularly to walk my dog. This is useful information for me. 

We also prouldy say "Hello" to our 4.000 (!) new users after the NOS broadcast. Missed it (and understand Dutch)? Check it out below.
