The Spot a Stroke F.A.S.T. app
The American Stroke Association is proud to introduce the “Spot a Stroke F.A.S.T.” app, now available in English and Spanish for free download.
Stroke is a leading cause of disability and number five cause of death in the United States, behind diseases of the heart and cancer. Approximately 795,000 individuals will have a stroke each year; of these, 167,000 individuals will die and more will suffer a major disability.
F.A.S.T. is an easy way to remember the sudden signs of a stroke. When you can spot the signs, you'll know quickly that you need to call 9-1-1 for help. This is important because the sooner a stroke victim gets to the hospital, the sooner they'll get treatment. And that can make a remarkable difference in their recovery.

Ratings and Reviews
Good — But Needs Work
Some of the functionality — such as the “Take The F.A.S.T. Quiz — isn’t working. It simply takes you to a different screen where the options are basically a Search box, and an “Exit Presentation” radial that isn’t working either. Overall, the basic content is very good, however.
Not great, needs work
Take quiz doesn't take you to a quiz. Pressing F doesn't take you to Face. Etc. some basic reprogramming could make it a lot better. The glitches could really flummox someone trying to use it in a hurry, which is what you'd be doing in an emergency.
Should be removed
App not up to date. Links broken. Gives false sense of security. Should be removed from App Store until fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
