Awkward and has problems
The navigation within be app is a little clunky, but my big issue is that I can't add symptoms from previous days that I forgot to log. Once I figured out how to do it, theoretically, the app wouldn't let me input any data on that screen. Also I tried to email my log to myself to test it and never received the email. This could be a very useful app if the the bugs are taken care of.
This frustrates me!
I REALLY want to love this app bc I feel it could be so helpful to those who have IBD like myself, HOWEVER, I'm getting frustrated bc aside from day one, I have been able to add my symptoms or any other important info except the foods I've eaten. When I try to click on the drop down boxes nothing happens!! Like I said, day 1 I was able too, but Everest after it hadn't worked. It's like it's frozen or something. Super annoyed bc I was excited to use this app. So as of right now I've been writing a narrative of my symptoms in the life style tab as it does let me do that. I don't even think that's what it's intended use is for, but it's the only way I can keep track right now. I'm only giving it 3 stars bc I love the idea, other than that it would give it 1 star!! Please FIX!!!
App with GREAT potential...
This app can play a critical role in being able to log meals, events and symptoms over time - which in turn make it easier to pinpoint our behavior patterns related to flares. What is lacking are ease of use features - one suggestion would be to create ways to "model" set meals. If we can make a common meal record that can be cloned/copied/edited more quickly. Right now I spend too much time micro-managing my diet logging (in the tool) to select 2 eggs, black-bean salsa, salmon and rice, etc. By allowing me to select items from my menu of items would be a huge benefit in time savings!
