Significant updates

This app has been updated very significantly since I last used it, looks rewritten. It does look like a lot of my original complaints have been addressed. I don't see a way to delete this review entirely, so I'm leaving the original text below for context. I'm leaving four stars in case I forget to come back and update the review again after spending more time with the app.


The overall design is pretty straightforward, and seems like it'd potentially be helpful, but there are a lot of bugs -- everything from unresponsive buttons, to misinterpreted gestures, to the wrong items being selected, to times being wrong, to scrolling not being correctly matched to finger position. They interfere with use of the app. I'd also like more expressiveness in logging headaches and categorizing non-headaches. For instance, caffeine could be a trigger or a treatment. A headache might come on slowly, and then ramp up in intensity over the course of hours. There isn't currently a clear way to express that kind of information. It'd also be great to have some ability to log weather and meal times (or say, unusual gaps between them).

Developer Response ,

We've made a lot of updates since 2020. And, happy to say a lot of the ideas in this review have been addressed. We now have a lot of ways to track pain that changes over time. For weather and meal times, there is now automated tracking. And, custom triggers so you can more easily track skipped meals or anything you'd like. Thank you for the feedback, James! And, here's hoping you might remove this review or update the rating. Genuine thanks for the ideas. Questions? team@migraineinsight.com

Quickly corrected privacy snapshot in the App Store

A few days back, I pointed out in my review that there was a contradiction in the Privacy “snapshot” shown in the Apple App Store, which claimed that no data of any kind is collected and shared (“Data Not Collected: The Developer Does Not Collect Any Data from this App.”), when compared to the full written Privacy Policy. The developer quickly responded and fixed the error, which I appreciate. Everybody makes mistakes, but not everybody owns up to them and corrects them the way this Developer did.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your comment. Security and data privacy are incredibly important. We'd like to work with you to get to the bottom this. And - we don't totally understand where the contradiction appears. Several of us just reviewed this together. But, we don't see it how what's disclosed varies from the privacy policy. Please reach out and let us know where you see the error and give us an opportunity to fix it? We'd like that opportunity. (This is Lynn Smith, CEO and Founder writing this response. I personally take data privacy very seriously. My email: lynn@migraineinsight.com. Or reach out to: security@migraineinsight.com.)

Works pretty well so far

I have not tried premium (yet) but even the free features seem pretty good. I like having the ability to track headache incidents as well as other symptoms, triggers, notes, and medications taken.

A few requests/bugs:
- I would like to have an easy way to report a headache that only lasts for a few seconds
- Typing in the “Add to log” text box only adds a note to the current day (even if I am looking at a different day at the time)
- Clicking the “Add rain or snow” button always wants to put the rain on Sunday, even though today is Friday and I am looking at the Friday page
- I would like there to be a log for symptoms and triggers
- It would be great to have the pain map available for generic symptoms

Developer Response ,

Can you update the app? You may find a couple of these go away. We are happy to report that the 'rain/snow' and 'add to log' text box were both fixed in 3.9..!

That said - thanks for all the feedback! Much appreciated. I didn't have your pain map generic symptoms idea on the roadmap. We added that and you'll see that soon! If you have any more thoughts or feedback, we LOVE feedback - team@migraineinsight.com.
