The only one of these android posture apps that is proving effective is the Posture Screen Mobile. It is really aimed at medical professionals in the business of assessing and correcting patients posture. More details can be found at the creator’s website here.

If you want to try a simple posture app that is free, you could give Posture Corrector a whirl. It’s major function is to send you a postural reminder at intervals you set. You also receive some suggested exercises. Don’t expect too much though as the rating of 3 out of 5 probably tells what is in store.

iOS Posture Apps

Over in the world of Apple apps (iTunes) it is harder to find high ranking / effective posture apps. In fact, you may be better to try a third party service like AppShopper to sort out some decent options. Here’s a list we pulled up that contains several relevant apps – Link to AppShopper posture category.

Our Conclusion


The field of posture apps still has plenty of room for skilful developers to make their mark. The apps available are generally only average at this stage.

However, if you are a medical professional (or a careful amateur), the Posture Screen Mobile app is definitely the market leader right now. It’s $25 cost is not huge if you end up with a healthier posture. The rest of the posture apps, both Android and Apple are only of limited usefulness – buyer beware in most cases.

It is also worth pointing out that there are a couple of effective apps which are available to those who own one of the current electronic posture correctors – Lumo Lift (our favourite), and iPosture. The iPosture app is actually a collection of postural exercises and stretches. The Lumo Lift app is an integral part of their whole system and provides the user with statistics linked to their sensor and training programmes.
