I was not surprised however that an American study, in comparing 4 such 'Apps', found, on testing 188 pictures of cancerous lesions, that in a third of cases the App wrongly 'diagnosed' an unproblematic lesion.  Read more here.

It is concerning that there are a number of these 'mole check' Apps on the market.  They are unregulated and in many cases give 'medical advice' with no involvement of any medical professional.  If you are concerned about a mole or any other skin lesion, consult your GP.
