Room for improvement

Not a bad app which seems to have worked well for the last two years I’ve used it. Recently it kept crashing when I opening it so I deleted the app and downloaded it again. I’ve lost the info in the growth tracker from my first son which is annoying because I was only using the app to track this info as I wasn’t able to have face to face appointments with the nurses due to covid. Would be good if you could create a profile so this info is always available.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your feedback. I would really like to know more about this issue. Could you please go to your profile page and in the contact us let me know what type of phone you are using, ie version and software and what version of the MCH App you are using and a bit more information about what is happening. This will assist with diagnoses. Thank you.

Mostly useless for weight tracking

Our MCHN recommended we use the app and we were excited at the prospect, but ultimately disappointed. There’s no connection with our MCHN, so the app’s use is purely for informative purposes.

The weight tracker is unusable. The centiles do not correspond to the WHO data and the y-axis indicates that a 5-month old will be less than 2 kg! When you enter your child’s weight the app calculates the centile but this value doesn’t correspond to the lines on the chart (eg baby is on the 50th centile but the app shows ~98%).

Ultimately this app is a disappointment at best and entirely misleading to new parents at worst. I wholeheartedly do not recommend that parents use this app in its current state.

Looking promising......... disappointed

Started using app and looked promising from the beginning. Nice user interface, easy to navigate, some good info. However, couple of areas need improving:
- growth tracker - doesn’t calculate weeks/months based on birth date so milestones added get incorrectly labelled for weeks and then compares to the wrong percentiles. Not able to change/update manually.
- vaccination tracking / reminder - where is it?

Developer Response ,

Sorry for not keeping up with the comments. Growth Tracker is finally getting an update in July 2021 so hopefully some of your concerns will be addressed. The MCH App is a reference tool with regards to Vaccinations this should be provided from your Maternal Child Health Nurse or Local Council. MCH App Team
