The Problem It Solves

Nicotrax was formed with one goal: taking down the number one cause of preventable death in United States, smoking addiction. After forming the company around this common goal, the founders set out to tackle this problem head on through an innovate hardware and software solution. They developed a cigarette “smart case” that uses bluetooth technology and custom sensors to track when a cigarette is pulled out of the box.

See how we built it.


With an innovative hardware solution, Nicotrax needed a team to develop their iOS app that would match their level innovation on the software side. Nicotrax teamed up with Lithios in 2015 to bring this solution to life. We developed a user friendly, feature rich app that communicates directly with the cigarette case via bluetooth and allows users to begin a state of the art cessation plan with custom usage charts, location data, and notifications. Together, Nicotrax and Lithios built a platform aimed to save lives.
