Needs to filter based on criteria
All in all, I’m very happy to participate in these studies. For all the people complaining about “lack of compensation” I would say that sometime we should just do things because they help others, not because we personally get compensation for it.
Knocking off one star because it needs to filter the studies based on eligibility criteria. As a guy, I cannot possible participate in a cycle tracking studies, so it should either not be show at all or have an option to dismiss from your available studies due to ineligibility.
On iPhone do a reset all settings. This turns off all notifications. This app doesn’t request to turn notifications back on so they never will turn on. I even tried turning notifications on and off in app but no go.
Update: notifications still broken with latest update
For a good reason
I am very happy that Apple allows researchers to access health information. I am even more happy that the participants can easily manage this information and understand what they share and why. This initiative can be groundbreaking in the health studies and I am happy to participate. The only thing that can be improved is the number of studies.
