Very helpful, but could use a few improvements

So happy to have this app for tracking symptoms after chemo treatments. It's easy to quickly capture a new event in real time and add very specific info as needed (e.g., fever - actual temp, or tachycardia - actual BPM).

It also works well to generate a quick report with a list of detailed events, email it to yourself, then use that to review and create a more concise list to review with my doctor.

The improvements that would really help:
1. Adapt font size to the device settings. On my iPad, the text is so tiiny in this app it is barely readable with my glasses on. And most apps are readable without glasses because I set my defaults that way.
2. Allow symptom names to be modified without losing the data. Sometimes when we start tracking a symptom, we misname it, name it too narrowly or too broadly, or just wrong, and need to adjust it later.
3. Because doctors want a pain reference number when we report symptoms, add that 1-10 scale either as a replacement of the existing score or an additional number kept with each event.

But overall this is a very reliable and easy to use app. And I'm so thankful it exists!!!

Great symptom tracker

Great overall app.
I like the symptom tracker the most.

I wish the graphs of symptoms allowed going back more than 7 observations, using some type of slider.

The IOS interface to Apple Health would be great if it captured other health Lab results or medical records.

Great app for patient self management

Great app for patients and families to navigate cancer care. A nice addition to the symptom management list would be memory and attention problems, distinct from more severe delirium or confusion, which may occur in the setting of acute toxicities with various treatments or drug interactions. Cognitive symptom tracking would be especially helpful for patients transitioning to the post-treatment phase of care, where mild to moderate memory problems may interfere with resumption of pre-cancer levels of work or home activity. This could aid patients in talking with their oncologist about management.
