We're pretty sure no one will argue with us on this one: Boobs are a great. And if you love boobies (especially your own), then you already know the importance of giving yourself a monthly breast cancer exam—something that just got a whole lot easier thanks to a new smart phone application from Boarding For Breast Cancer (B4BC).

The newly released mobile app lets you set personalized, automatic reminders to help you keep up with your monthly breast self-exams, one of the most effective means of early detection of the cancer. According to Johns Hopkins Medical Center, "40 percent of diagnosed breast cancer is detected by women who feel a lump on their own bodies," so keeping up with your exams is crucial to your wellbeing.

In addition, the nonprofit's mobile app offers their signature Check One, Two guide—which provides a step-by-step tutorial on how to do the self exams—and health and wellness content by B4BC team riders like professional snowboarders Elena Hight and Jamie Anderson and surfers Sage Erickson and Courtney Conlogue.

Get the free B4BC app on the iPhone, iPad and Android.
