Ratings and Reviews
Very useful & gets easier to use over time
I have been using this ap for nearly a week after my gastroenterologist suggested I keep a food and symptom diary. I don’t want to have to do this but if I am going to invest the time, I want to have useful data. This ap allows a lot of individualization, both of data type as well as granularity. It is taking a little longer to figure out how to optimally use than a less customizable ap but I greatly appreciate having this flexibility.
So, e.g., if I want to list only 2 items for a day, such as “coffee” and “heartburn” I could do that. Or if I want to list detailed ingredients and quantities and exact times with free text comments in multiple categories, I can also do that. If over time I realize I need to go more or less granular or add or subtract a category, I can do that. After using for a few days, the selectable entries became much quicker as the ap defaults to listing prior entries as available selections for subsequent days. If you are like me, you are taking some of the same meds and supplements and eating many of the same foods each day. I don’t have enough data yet for extensive analysis yet but look forward to exploring these features more as well. There is a wealth of information available here, so far it has been well worth the time I have invested.
This is the first time I’ve EVER reviewed an app, because it’s the first
time I’ve ever been so impressed! The functionality is amazing— so much more than you’d expect for an inexpensive little app. The ability to toggle on/off certain configurations / ways the algorithm works / analysis period to find top suspects— is evidence of the care and pride into this app. I could not believe when I went on vacation, the times of each entry changed for that day, so I didn’t have to do any more work (ie, pretending to be on a different timezone that day) so my “X hours after” ingestion values weren’t wrecked— it just worked, without any human adjustment needed! Clearly someone has thought long and hard about every scenario, and taken steps to address it in the app. I think the ability to either create a new recipe or replace all previous instances of the recipe with your new entry is essential, and without it, I doubt the results would ever be accurate. Basically I’m blown away by this app!!!! I should note that I find technology intuitive in general. If you want a more beginner’s app, and you’re willing to trade functionality for ease of learning the app, maybe you’d want to choose a different one. Personally I’m so glad I didn’t. This app rocks!!!
Developer Response ,

Most excellent tool to manage my symptoms!
i downloaded a week ago, after 3 successive disappointing experiences with similar apps. when trying to register initially last Sunday, i did not notice the password requirements, and failed numerous times. I asked by email for help, which was immediately answered on the first hour on Monday! amazing customer service and follow up care , exceptional company!! All being wonderful, i started using it, and here’s the real amazement:- it’s probably the most comprehensive, smart, beautifully designed and well-thought app out there. Being a systems analyst myself, i naturally tried to test/challenge/trick and find the problems or things lacking with the app...:). WOW AND BRAVO guys, superb achievement, you need to be proud of your work, it tremendously helps people like me with real bad lifelong symptoms of a disease that must be controlled by using such a tool that keeps track of everything so perfectly. Best thing about it is it’s simplicity and ease to amend, correct, add data backdated, improve our records, and even add new items that currently do not exist in the database. Thank you developers, great job!!
