For iPhone users, there is a free Anti-Mosquito Sonic Repeller app that works in the exact same way as the Android app but doesn’t guarantee 100-percent success.

Additionally, Android users can also track the bugs in their area by logging onto the free M Tracker app.  This gives users the ability to report what the mosquitoes are like in their particular area and see maps for areas where other users say the bugs are at their worst.
