Ratings and Reviews
Has potential- not quite there yet
I wish the app would allow you to go back in to your symptoms and food “check-in” more than once a day since symptoms often change throughout a day. I’m 26 and I don’t think that the layout of the app is very user friendly, although I am still figuring it out. The weather tracker doesn’t work (I’ve tried zip codes, typing in cities and full addresses) and I’m also unable to log in on my iPad, I keep getting an error that the password is incorrect, but I’m using the same log in info I used on my phone.
Much too slow
This app looks like it could be so great. I was hoping it would be great. When trying to track, things were extremely slow. No other app is this slow on my phone and wi-fi. With a lot of things to track it was taking forever to enter things, since you have to wait several minutes after entering each thing for the app to save it and the message goes away that says you have unsaved data please wait. Then it will finally let you enter the next item you want to track. I thought when I set up my account that it was asking me what conditions and symptoms I wanted to track because it was going to have them all ready in the app. No! I was having to re-type them again and wait do the above mentioned waiting between each item. Paper and pen is 1000 times fast. I’d like to have the charting and graphs, but I don’t have hours to spend trying to enter the things I need to track. Maybe I’ll give it another try later down the road to see if anything has been done to improve the speed.
Slow and tedious
The app won’t load the changes that I’m adding, it doesn't allow refresh, and I’ve shut down down the app several times in a row to get it to work. I finally gave up on this thing before even completing my first check-in because it’s painstakingly slow, and in the meantime it is not clear whether it is loading, saving, crashing, etc. When you first download, it asks you to input conditions and common symptoms, which is GREAT because I have a range of symptoms and conditions. But when you’re adding data, you cannot reference those things that you attempted to customize at the beginning. The reason that I want this type of app is so that I could be more efficiently intentional about noticing and tracking my symptoms; I want this to prompt me about the status of the symptoms that I’ve specifically preselected. If those symptoms aren’t listed in front of me, then I’m going to forget something, which defeats the purpose. Even if this app would load, it is more trouble than it’s worth.
