Ratings and Reviews
Could be more useful
I was on the crohn’s and colitis website and it mentioned this. I was really wanting something to track my food diary and symptoms and show any links so I can manage my symptoms and flares, but this isn’t it. You record stool samples and it reminds you of appointments and that’s about it, apart from some videos which are fairly standard.
It’s very clearly to collect data which is fine and I’m happy to help but I just don’t see what someone with IBD gets from it if they remember their meds and appointments.
It’s a shame it’s such a missed tool for sufferers

Bad interface and not designed for device use
I’ve been asked to use this app by my medical team in lieu of appointments during Covid. I’m not impressed with the app, it has been difficult to set up my personal information and input my medication correctly. It doesn’t seem to want to interact with my phone’s keyboard but won’t activate any drop down menu for me to select alternatives. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling to no avail, the app now crashes.
I will be forwarding this feedback to my medical team and Crohn’s and Colitis UK, as I have no faith in it for how I’ve been asked to use it. Maybe with some updates it will improve, but it really needs to be better thought out.

I downloaded this app to track and manage my Crohn’s now that I am in remission. I log my well-being every day and use the tracking features provided. A really good way to keep track of things without any hassle, and an easy way to look back for any recurring patterns or trends in my health.
Would highly recommend for anyone who wants an easy to use app to keep track of their IBD.
