Favourite food & symptoms tracking app!
This app is honestly amazing for any IBS sufferers. It’s very straightforward and intuitive, although it does have a user guide within the app should you need assistance with anything. I love that you can see the exact time you’ve made a diary entry as it helps me stay aware of my choices and it keeps me accountable. I’m also happy that I can go back to a previous day and fill up my diary if I was too busy to do it on the day. The graphs are helpful and I’m glad they are transparent about correlation not causation and that they include confidence levels. The graphics are ok, the app has a clean look, nothing fancy but nice and easy to use.
A few suggestion for the developers: introduce a trends tab, for example one of your competitors has trends graphs of how the bowel movements fluctuate within a week or within a month. That would be helpful as well as stress trends or maybe some way to see them both on the graph to see the correlation.
Also, it’d be good if you could fetch health data from Apple’s Health app and link the results to that. For example, a big trigger for my flare-ups is lack of sleep and I track my sleep on my smart watch so it’d be cool if MySymptoms could pick up on lack of sleep etc. You could do it for other smart watches too, like Garmin or Fitbit. Exercise and sleep definitely impact IBS so it’d be amazing if that was an option.
mediocre at best
the 'algorithm' is highly questionable not least because the data input is highly error prone unless you create your own very specific foods etc and only use them to ensure consitency. Even then there's no way to identify your own items in the 'organizer' as its just a database dumped list. more broadly it highly lacks any real form of organisation built in or customisable to help you ensure your data is correct. at best it is a basic food diary. it has t been actively developed on since I first used it in late 2016. the 'cloud' option is their own - this stopped working 4 weeks after registration and disabling the 'cloud' option renders the app unusable (and no access to my data).
Developer Response ,
We're sorry to hear you haven't found the app useful. The app is frequently updated. Please contact our support team regarding any issues with your cloud account and they will be happy to remedy the issue. Kind regards, mySymptoms team.
