Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health issue. Mobile technology is pervasive and widely used in chronic disease care. More and more, CKD mobile applications (apps) can be found on popular mobile application platforms, especially in Chinese. We aim to explore current mobile apps for CKD patient care (searching in English and Chinese) through content analysis to identify the app functions that health professionals can use in CKD patient care and to help CKD patients with self-management.
