FTA: "Doctors already listen to their patients' coughs to diagnose whooping cough, asthma and pneumonia"

...do they not do that with a stethoscope pressed against various parts of the rib cage so that they can better classify the nature of the sounds?  It sounds like this app is simply a "dry cough, not dry cough" detector.  Which, I mean great if it can do that, but it doesn't even seem like it's fully evaluating the one feature they're classifying their "patients" on.
