iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users can gather even more accurate data from the built-in barometer.
Ratings and Reviews
I love the interface. Its easy to add data points for migration days and non migraine days, which is important when figuring out trigger. Unlike many other apps you are asked 50 questions every time you log.
BUT it's useless if i can't view my history or export the data. You also can't choose what units yup use, I'd rather use Fahrenheit for temp and inches for pressure
Over all, it's just not ready for it to be useful.
I can't find a way to change the temperature to Fahrenheit, looks like it's only available in Celsius. I can't tell how this would 'alert' you about possible migraines either - when I answered the two questions it says that 'no one in my area is reporting migraines'. So I guess more people need to have the app for it to work? There doesn't appear to be anywhere to enter your personal info (age, gender, etc) it uses only your location to analyze migraine potential? Not sure how or if this will work.
The idea that weather can affect migraines is insightful. Clogged nasal cavities are especially susceptible to air pressure changes. Nice to see an app that can help track users migraines and give you the current weather.
I hope the author updates and includes additional features for mitigating migraines. For migraines from sinuses using a tuning fork in the nose did wonders. Weird but true.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
