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.

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.
Is Power in the hands of not knowing.
