Can I trust skin cancer apps, like skinvision to find out if a mole is benign or malignant?

In brief: Minimally

While skin cancer apps are getting more reliable, they are not yet sophisticated enough to replace an exam by a dermatologist with a dermatoscope and they certainly cannot replace the diagnostic accuracy of a biopsy.
While consulting an app may be helpful, seeing a specialist is best to resolve your concerns.
