This paper aims to look at the features and usefulness of free mobile health applications accessible in the Google Play and App stores that were used during the COVID-19 epidemic. The article found 11 mobile applications which are Mawid, Tabaud, Tawakkalna, Sehha, Aarogua Setu, Immuni, COVID-19 Symptom, NHS COVID-19, COVID watch, and finally PathCheck. Different features are investigated such as contact tracing, personalized notes, educational resources, network tools (GPS and Bluetooth), security and safety. Various applications have been built for various activities such as contact tracking, appointment booking, and online consultation. Only a few applications, however, have integrated functions and features including self-assessment, consultation, assistance, and information access. The majority of the applications are supported with GPS and Bluetooth technology for monitoring and tracing people. There were no applications found with built-in social media functionalities. It is advised that most of the characteristics and functions examined in this study have been used to build and construct an integrated mobile health application.
