A word from the developer

"It is stunning to read studies indicating that as many as 10-20% of the world’s population have IBS. The symptoms can vary so considerably from individual to individual that one may wonder if it is even the same condition.

I created Bowelle because there is a need for a fresh and modern approach in the marketplace. If you are reading this, chances are that your symptoms are affecting your life more than you like. By keeping a record every day, my hope is that you will identify some of the triggers causing your symptoms.

If you have any suggestions or feedback, feel free to drop me a note at feedback@bowelle.com. I will listen to everything coming my way."

Finally! An easy way to track food & stress triggers.

I never thought I’d be leaving a review for an app that deals with diarrhea, but if you’re reading this then you know how IBS can interrupt your life. That’s how I ended up here; I was looking for something that would make some part of this easier.

I’ve been having stress related stomach/gut issues for a few years now. Plus a few obvious food sensitivities that I was able to figure out on my own (when you start having severe cramps and need a bathroom within 20 minutes of eating the same food more than twice it’s not a coincidence). When I began having bouts of diarrhea with no obvious connection to anything, I knew I needed to start keeping a food journal. No matter my good intentions I couldn’t remember to write down everything I ate, IF I remembered to do it at all.

I recently decided I would search for a food journaling app, not the diet/calorie type. When I searched, and added IBS in the parameters...bingo! I found Bowelle. I’ve only been using it about a week, but I’ve already found it so helpful. It is so easy to use. I always have my phone with me. I can easily record the time I ate or drank, or had a bowel movement. I can keep track of medications I take for dealing with symptoms. I know that the history and reports portion will be a big help to me in determining my triggers. I now have a way to be objective about my symptoms.

Great for tracking how often you go

I have tried a lot of digestion apps and this is the only one I am still using after 450+ days. My Gastroenterologist was very impress to see over a year of tracking. It helped him see the current treatment with the low FODMAP diet alone is working better than when we tried to treat it with just medication. So glad this app is available. And for the record I would pay for it if it started charging. One of the features I love is the ability to customer what you want to track and add in custom symptoms. I have mad sugar cravings. So I track that. I have various digestive discomforts all of which I can track. It’s very helpful also to set the alert, mine goes off at 9pm to ask if you forgot to make an update today. I frequently forget during a busy day but I usually make an entry when the alert pops up. There are some improvements I would suggest, like the ability to delete symptoms I added which I no longer track. But all in all this is a simple and easy to use app for tracking bowel frequency and context. Great app. Highly recommend. Love that it’s free but I would pay for it to keep it if that ever changed. I give my best to the developer and thank him for this tracking tool. It has helped me so much to manage IBS symptoms.

Simple, feature-rich time saver

Everything about your health is related to the gut, and the gut microbiota. You don’t have to be suffering from a diagnosed gut illness to benefit from keeping a record of your meals, snacks, beverages, mood, stress level, medications, supplements, and bowel movements—their frequency, consistency, quantity, discomfort, and other characteristics.

Before discovering Bowelle I was going to journal all this information from a Pages template every day, but that’s a lot of typing! Bowelle saves so much time, and organizes everything the way you want. You can add things to track like exercise, alcohol, caffeine, or anything you can imagine. You can view the history, see it as a graph, and create reports.

Response to customer service requests or feedback is fast and personal. The paid version is well worth the small subscription price if you want to track more than the basic version does. I am very happy with this app; studying my record has already given me insights into how I can improve my gut health, and so improve my general health. I will be able to share the information with my doctor in a clear and organized way. Thanks, Bowelle developers! Bravo!
