The cancer burden continues to grow globally, exerting tremendous physical, emotional, and financial strain on individuals, families, communities, and health systems. The number of health-related mobile applications (apps) is increasing rapidly. We searched for pain apps specific for cancer patients on App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices. An integrated pain management app (IPMA) is the need of the hour, which will not only provide a platform to users to assess their pain scores but also assess other associated symptoms and can provide a step-wise assessment to their symptomatology. This can offset the patient burden in the outpatient pain clinic and reduce the number of follow-up visits by addressing common concerns that can be tackled easily at home.
