developers, this app is such a great idea - i love being able to connect with people with similar conditions as me and maintain confidentiality and anonymity as well. there’s so many features that are great, from having an optional lock screen, to being able to connect to a provider, get tips for managing your condition, connect w a community of similar people. to me, it’s unique and i don’t know many platforms like this. the ux/ui is really nice too and it’s very aesthetically pleasing to look at.

for some feedback of things i’d like to see as a user:
would love if there was a section where you could journal down some things - maybe also highlighting in diff colors and things
i love that when you’re adding your conditions, you can see factual information that comes with it - that said, i would love if there was a search engine for you to find this information again after adding it and also bookmarking them / that information - it’s helpful bc you can learn more things or symptomatology of your condition you may not have known previously !
would love if you could bookmark people’s questions/responses to come back to

This app is pretty interesting if you have a chronic illness, especially if you don’t have anyone in your life with similar conditions to you. I like how the app provides privacy, since that was something I was worried about (you don’t share your real name/almost any personal info, and you get full control over which conditions to put on your profile). I would say that this app is actually really similar to a medically oriented (and not geographically restricted) version of Yik Yak.

There are a few small flaws to the app, though. Unfortunately there are some medical conditions missing, including two of my main diagnoses, which is a huge bummer (since your only option, then, is to either not list it at all or choose something just vaguely similar to what you actually have). It’s also just very sparse, with extremely low engagement. Most of my conditions have zero posts under them. Finally, I really think this app needs to offer private messaging. Although the Yik Yak style is sometimes entertaining, it also feels a bit really impersonal and uncomfortable, especially given the discussion content. Making everything public also stops anyone from forming friendships or from having actual discussions, which is what most people seemed to have been wanting from the app in the first place.

Overall, though, it’s a decent app with a good premise, and I think it has the potential to take off.

I did love this app

I even wrote a review titled I love this app. Don’t know if this review and make it up on the reviews. There is absolutely no way to respond directly to people. You think you are. The reason why I say this is because I post something and then get notifications that people have replied yet there’s no way to find my original post. This bothers me. What else bothers me is there’s no way to directly reply to somebody on a post. It creates a lot of confusion when you think you’re replying directly to somebody but actually it goes via message to them. I experience this myself and that’s how I know. Because I get direct messages from people and I have no idea what they’re replying to. There’s no way to change my profile name. There’s no way to change my profile color sticker. I have so much hope for this app yet nothing developer wise is making this better.
Also there’s no way to let the other person know that you’re Answering them or communicating with them. Meaning, you can’t mention their name, you can’t tag it.. I have no idea if somebody has replied back to me unless I go through all of my history.
