A new app could help you stay flu-free.

Sickweather helps track trending illnesses and where they are spreading around your location.

The information in the app is then added to a map for users to see how close outbreaks are.

The app also includes helpful tips on how to avoid getting the flu.

Representatives for the app say that reports of a cough, allergies, and fever can help them forecast an outbreak up to 15 weeks in advance.

Sickweather is free and available for download in both the iTunes and Google Play stores.
