Researchers from University of New South Wales in Australia have developed a new smartphone app which they claim will help people fight against Alzheimer's disease.

Rather than monitor the brain, the new app, known as BrainyApp, will help people make the correct lifestyle choices that will help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.

The app will allow the users to enter details about their diet, lifestyle and exercise patterns and will come up with suggestions on how to improve their lifestyle.

Apart from the lifestyle suggestions, the app also has a set of "brain games" that will stimulate the brain. "That's really trying to address the idea of mental stimulation and learning new things, and also checking off whether you're doing enough physical exercise and whether you've gone and checked your blood pressure and cholesterol and things like that", University of New South Wales' Dr Michael Valenzuela said.
