The lack of standardized descriptors of behavior change facilitators in mobile health apps makes it difficult for clinicians and consumers to quickly evaluate the potential of a mobile health app. The Behavior Change Technique Taxonomy (BCTT) was developed to evaluate health interventions for the presence of behavior change techniques. This paper describes the methods used and methodological results in applying the BCTT to commercially available mobile health apps in the respiratory and sleep domains.
