Resus Algorithms reaches new heights. 3000+ Users on Android

Resus Algorithms now has 3000+ users on Android (and over 4000 total downloads). Over half of these users are in the UK, which is the target market.

There have been over 1700 downloads on iOS since release but there is no way of assessing the number of continued installs through iTunes Connect. 1200+ downloads were from the UK.

This gives Resus Algorithms a potential installed UK user base of about 2800.

The NHS Confederation site states:
"In 2013 the NHS employed 147,087 doctors, 371,777 qualified nursing staff"
That's a potential 0.54% penetration. Not bad!

Healthcare Password Survey
I conducted a small survey last month. It's been quite revealing; the results aren't a surprise, but the scale of some of the biases revealed are. I'd love to redo this properly - countrywide - though I doubt that there would be that much of a difference. 
Total responses were 207. Here is the breakdown - 

Do you use least one username and password to access systems at your work?

The vast majority of healthcare workers obviously need access to computer systems as part of their jobs. Everything is becoming electronic, or is already (or should be!). 
Number of Username-Password combinations?

Gamification and Education

Duolingo

Anyone who has used Duolingo for any amount of time will tell you - it's wonderful. Why is it wonderful? Well, it teaches you a foreign language and you can tell its working because you progress. There comes a point where you're typing (or swiping) whole sentences and you just get it. It starts to come together. Suddenly you can say "Our cat does not eat cheese" and then "His trousers are red" in another language. Your pronunciation is probably awful but so what?

The thing with Duolingo is this; it doesn't just teach you, it gamifies the teaching. Each lesson is packaged into little chunks and for each chunk you have 3 hearts, or lives. You can fail but you can't fail too many times. It's a bit like R-Type in that sense, and you can buy power-ups and extras (though I can't find the heart refill anymore, sadly). There's even a timed practice that really puts the pressure on.

So as you can tell, if you've ever thought about th…
