Good, but it could be better
This app, as far as I know, is the only one of its kind. It fills a much needed gap for a niche group of people. If you've been having stomach problems I highly recommend it. However, I do feel that the app developers need to do more heavy lifting with the food database. Having to type in every single food and its ingredients is tedious. I didn't expect to be able to look up things like "Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup", but there should at least be basic ingredients available with the "a kind of" box filled out (for example: celery: a kind of vegetable). It's the filling out of the "a kind of" box that helps narrow down just what is bothering you. Other users don't seem to get this and will simply input "celery". That's not going to help you if vegetables overall are what's bothering you, for example. A more realistic example is looking up "cookie" to find that it has no ingredients, then deciding to input it's ingredients like butter, flour, and eggs to find that those haven't been sorted as fat, grain, and dairy. You have to type it all in. If stock foods like these were already entered into the database by the developer (and appeared at the top maybe with some sort of indication) I wouldn't mind having to input my own ingredients so much, but as it is there is a huge time investment as you begin to use the app.
Great app that has helped me bunches!
I was just recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in July at only 20 and was looking for something that would help me control my symptoms as well as monitor my bowel movements and being user friendly and organized! This is a great app for anyone who has experienced any IBS or IBD symptoms because I ALWAYS have my phone on me there's no more worries about missing that quick snack I had on the run or those seemingly simple symptoms until it's too late. I like how each thing has their own category and it learns your normal foods and symptoms and bowel movements over time. I also like how it is organized and is easy to see what trends could be causing the symptoms and I like that you can print off monthly reports to show your doctor and dietician! I think it's also a nice idea that they give you samples of what kind of bowel movements you have so that you can just choose the one closest to your movement and no more wondering how much information you should be collecting for each movement! I was worried when I was diagnosed that this would control my whole life but with this app I feel like I have some control over my health again and it feels empowering!
Very Nice, but getting too cluttered
This app has really helped clarify my food and drink choices, and exercise habits. After only a couple of weeks of logging it's clear that some of my meal choices have been lacking in one thing or another, particularly protein, which explains why my stomach cramps right after eating sometimes. The only thing I'm really very unhappy about is that the favorites tab does not list my favorite injuries. Instead it lists everyone's entries, therefore I'm having to scroll through forever or add specific entries for why I'm using this take your app in the first place… Which is to log the foods/type of food and not the actual amount of every food. I just wish that, for instance, when I search for a food such as onions, that I don't have to see everyone else's quarter cup, half cup, 1 cup, 2 tablespoons, etc., etc., etc before finding a simple entry of "onions". This is becoming increasingly frustrating to me as I continue to use the app and more people use the app.
