Ratings and Reviews
Great but basic
I've been using it for three days and it seems great overall, and I have two suggestions. Love the detailed allergy triggers info each day and the ability to track how you feel. My initial suggestions:
1) Add an opt-in feature to prompt me to add the day's tracker information. This would benefit WebMD as you'd get me on the app more frequently. Recommend making this possible from Apple Watch as well so I can do it while sitting in a meeting at work or at a traffic light. LOL.
2) Would love more than three options to describe how I feel each day - i suggest five. I forget the exact words used, but I wish I had the ability to be somewhere in between "okay" (medium) and "great"for example.
Increases awareness of allergy triggers
I set my webMD allergy app preference for notification of levels of allergens on all my devices. I’m not a TV weather forecasts watcher (unless perhaps a state of allergic emergency were declared ;-), so this app is my allergy/air quality source.
My yard is full of trees. In dry weather, dust and tree pollen alerts are frequent. And when conditions become very wet, I’ll know of rising mold levels outside and turn up my dehumidifier. The app lets me know if outdoor work is advisable before I get going & react w allergic headache, etc. I tell my daughter when air quality is really bad so she & children (all having asthma) should stay inside that day or wear masks if outside long.
The app also has good articles, with proven advice on allergy management. The following true story shows how this app can help save a life:
A young woman with asthma was on a bike workout. She’d made 2 mistakes this app could’ve prevented. 1st, she did not know air quality was poor (& perhaps change to indoor biking that day). 2nd, as advised for all asthmatics, she did not have an emergency inhaler on her person. She may have died of suffocation but for her fellow biker - also asthmatic - wisely having his own inhaler for her to use.
Had this woman followed those 2 basic app tips, she could have prevented the scary medical event completely.
Great app minus the issue getting notifications
I’d give this app a 5 star rating if it weren’t for the fact that the notifications have never worked. Not at any point in the years I’ve been using it and it’s been that way on multiple phones I’ve had so it’s not related to my device. I’ve asked support for help fixing it and have not been successful in getting an answer which isn’t helpful. It’s great to be able to see the levels and allergens plus track all your symptoms and relief utilized. However if I knew via alerts a given allergen was high on a particular day, I’d change certain lifestyle factors to keep my symptoms as managed as possible. Initially I would go outside or do something that I’d never have done if I’d known certain things were high that day, so I assumed no notifications meant nothing elevated— and I was so wrong and it was months later I realized it just doesn’t work properly —so beware, and don’t expect to receive one if you have an allergen you try to avoid when elevated, because you’ll never be made aware by this app unfortunately. Minus that problem it’s otherwise a great app!
